Prepare for birth, breastfeeding, & beyond from the comfort of your home (or from anywhere in world) with online classes.
bEarth Work was created to conveniently connect Black mothers and birthing individuals to online courses created by Black birthworkers and other health professionals. The courses and classes listed on the app span preconception through breastfeeding and the postpartum period. Prepare for birth, breastfeeding, and beyond through online classes taught by professionals, like doulas and lactation consultants, who are key support persons that can help combat the barriers that cause Black maternal health and breastfeeding disparities.
Maternal deaths and breastfeeding disparities among Black women are public health crises. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Black women are 3-4 times more likely to die from pregnancy related causes than White women and the majority of these deaths are preventable. Although breastfeeding rates among Black women have increased significantly over the last decade, breastfeeding initiation and duration rates among Black mothers fall short of meeting national and international breastfeeding recommendations.
We believe that Black women across the spectrum of health professions and birth work have the knowledge and expertise, skills, and insider perspectives to combat these disparities. Black woman owned and led, bEarth Work is a sister company of Black Girls' Breastfeeding Club, LLC. It was created by a mother, a public health scientist, and maternal and child health advocate. Our vision is a digital space where Black mothers and birthing people can receive high quality education and support from birthworkers and health professionals to prepare for pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding and beyond.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
bEarth Work Customer
"I gained so much information from this course. My knowledge of the childbirth process was limited and after taking this course I feel a lot more confident. I loved how the course was individualized; it felt as if I was talking to a friend! I would highly recommend this course for all expectant mothers!"
