Black Women for Wellness

About Us

Black Women for Wellness is committed to healing, educating, and supporting Black Women! We started with the Birthing Project in Los Angeles in 1999. We began as a group of women concerned about the health and well-being of our babies. As grandmothers, mothers, aunties, daughters, and sisterfriends, we found we had no choice but to take on the plethora of health issues Black women encounter.
