The Art Of Birthing (TAOB) began as a way to engage the community in conversations about infant mortality. Today TAOB is a national holistic conference experience. Using various forms of artistic expression, we engage communities in conversations about maternal and infant health, birth options, empowered birth, perinatal disparities and solutions to move us toward health equity. The Art of Birthing is also a fundraiser to support our Healthy Birth Louisiana initiative.


This year TAOB will be a combination of virtual and in person events.

While registration for our Birth Justice Film Festival is free we encourage you to make donation, purchase an add on and enhance your experience and your vibe with the addition of a specially curated Virtually Vibin' TAOB Box.

Most people are unaware that we have a childbirth crisis in our community. The United States is the only developed nation with a growing maternal mortality rate. Nearly one third of women give birth via major abdominal surgery. More than thirty percent of women report experiencing trauma while giving birth or report experiencing symptoms of postpartum depression. Too many of our babies don’t get to celebrate their first birthday, and unfortunately the black community experiences these poor outcomes in disproportionate numbers. The answers to many of these issues, and to eliminating perinatal disparities, lie within our community.


The Art of Birthing began as a way to engage the community in conversations about infant mortality. We have grown our efforts and now we use this as a time to engage the community in conversations about all things pregnancy including birth options, perinatal disparities, birth advocacy and most importantly solutions.
