Red Birth Green

Red Birth Green (RBG) provides accessible, full-spectrum reproductive care to the Kalamazoo area. Our WOC-founded and led team offers all-embracing community care for the modern age.  

We believe in the principle of Sankofa, which teaches us that we must remember our past to move forward in the future. Our birthwork philosophy combines traditional healing practices and collectivism with a modern standard of care.  

We meet our clients where they are, without judgment or opinion. Your lived experiences are important and valuable, and we will always trust your judgement.  This is your body and your birth; our goal is to empower all families to advocate for themselves through shared knowledge and connections.  

Our History

Red Birth Green was founded as the Rootead Doula Collective in 2016 as a way to address Black infant mortality with community care and principles of traditional healing practices. Equitable access and care for all is and has always been our driving mission.

Red Birth Green Testimonials

“I finally feel like someone is on my side and I didn’t feel pressured.  I learned how to fight for myself and my baby.”
“[My doula] believed me and understood how things really are.”
“My first birth was so traumatic. I was scared to go through that again alone and [my doula] showed me I didn't have to.”
“Thx for always picking up. Even though I’m not a client or nothing…plus you didn’t know me like that, y'all answer my questions and gave me ideas of stuff to try to help my boys.”
“This is incredible.  Our community needs this; WE need this.  It’s too hard to do it alone.”
“I’m so happy baby is here and off my bladder.  You’re here.  I’m safe now.”
“So happy this (RBG) exists for young moms like me.  My mom isn't really in my life like that, so sometimes I don't know what to do.  My doulas helped a lot.”
