Our Purpose

Wiiji-Nitaawiginaawasojig Indigenous Birth Services has been founded by Indigenous Midwife, Hope Mayotte, in collaboration with numerous Indigenous Birth Workers. It is the newest services supported by and provided at The Ashland Birth Center. We offer a full spectrum of Indigenous Services and teachings from preconception through the first years of life. We provide safe respected space that is needed for Indigenous individuals, families, and community to receive the care that is needed to heal and create new traditions.

Donations

4-22-2020

Indigenous Birth Services are free for all Indigenous people when receiving care through the Ashland Birth Center. In order to keep all services free we will rely on donations and fundraising. Every order of Indigenous Birth Services products helps change lives and promote healing and overall well-being. So share the cause and order if you can. If you know someone who could use services outside of birth at Ashland Birth Center, as an Indigenous mother, I love a good barter.  So let’s work for the same cause and kick some colonization ass and heal the people to keep the next generation healthy.
