Serving Since 2018
Motherland Community is the nonprofit arm of MotherlandCo., LLC.
We are fiscally sponsored by BMore Empowered, a 501(c)3 dedicated to empowering women and girls of color through mindfulness and entrepreneurship.
Motherland Community was a 2018-2019 recipient of the Baltimore Corps Elevation Award. We received a $10,000 seed grant to begin our efforts to assist families of color in Baltimore City with prenatal, postpartum, and fertility challenges, and mental health care.
Our new initiative is providing a birth companion (doula) and perinatal yoga to pregnant teens in the Maryland's foster care system. Teens will be paired with a birth companion who will assist them with childbirth, lactation and support up to 4 weeks postpartum. They will also have access to restorative perinatal yoga classes to address and process trauma responses and hold space for their baby.
Motherland envisions a Baltimore where all families – regardless of race and economic status – have the right to birth equity: mind and body.
