The Prison Birth Project shares the unfortunate situations of incarcerated mothers and their “inherently traumatic” birth experiences. Fortunately, the doula care PBP provides has had such an effect on these women that the cycle of violence is stopping in some of their lives.
Marianne Bullock founded the Prison Birth Project based on her own experience with the criminal justice system. She has been working as a doula for 10 years. She lectures on prison and reproductive justice issues. She is an Ada Comstock Scholar at Smith College and mother to a spirited young daughter. theprisonbirthproject.org
