Ain’t I A Woman: A Person-Centered Approach to Reproductive Care for Black Women

Through intentional dialogue and listening sessions led by UBUNTU Research and Evaluation, we explore Black women’s reproductive care journeys, stories, and experiences with special attention to their birthing and labor histories.  

The findings were compiled and analyzed with the purpose of engaging the larger Nebraska community, healthcare systems, policy partners, and community-based birth workers to unveil the reproductive healthcare needs of Black women.
