Holistic Birth Collective is a growing partnership with women across the Chicago-land area who all attend to holistic birth care in various ways. As a community we can rally together to more easily provide exceptional birthing experiences to women of all demographics. Those who are connected here strive to encourage mothers in their womanhood, to create healthier birth environments, and to make prenatal care and birthing education accessible to all women. Through Holistic Birth Collective every birth is uniquely special and sacred. To view birth holistically means it’s not just the moment of delivery that’s important. In fact, a mother begins to impart her thoughts and feelings to her child while baby is growing in the womb. Invitro care is imperative in many ways affecting the mind, body and spirit of mom and baby. The bond between mother and baby is so sacred and must continue to be supported, respected and honored. We strive to uphold Holistic care as baby, mother, and family adjust to taking care of a new life and themselves in the new chapter of their lives.

At Holistic Birth Collective we have a heart to eliminate racial disparity. According to research, African American women are nearly four times more likely to die from pregnancy related complications than are white women. African American women are also two to three times more likely to experience preterm birth, and three times more likely to give birth to a low birthweight infant. We find it heartbreaking that African American infants are about 230 percent more likely than white infants to die before their first birthdays. Through commitment, education, and offering quality care that is culturally sensitive we collectively can significantly improve these birth outcomes. And in doing so improve families and communities, one birth at a time.

The overall goal of the Collective is to work together to empower families to make informed decisions that will lead to thriving and healthy birth outcomes. We provide unconditional care and celebrate in love the unique journeys of having babies. Whether you’d like to join the heartbeat and/or need some love for your body, mind  and baby, we’re here for you.

In May 2020 Sister Star made a testimony to the Senate Licensure Group highlighting the need to legalize midwives in Illinois. In her address she points out the harrowing depth of racial disparity both in regards to black childbirth and COVID-19 difficulties. Midwives, as she defends, can seriously lessen these major issues and foster health and life to the black community at large. If you would like to read Sister Star’s Testimony, click below.
