How we're helping to support black-birthing parents and how you can, too
1.
Introducing NOURISH
Knix and the Black Women’s Health Imperative have created NOURISH— a Postpartum Doula training program designed to meet the needs of Black birthing families. We have provided $75,000 to launch this scholarship program that will fund the year long training for 20 Postpartum Doulas and free postpartum care to 80 families. And with your help, $1 from every item purchased from our Maternity & Postpartum Collection will go toward expanding NOURISH to make this happen.

Supporting Doulas
Now more than ever, Black birthing parents experience more social isolation while postpartum which makes the “Fourth Trimester” an extra vulnerable time. Studies have proven that support from a Doula can make this period an emotionally healthier experience, while significantly reducing maternal mortality.
