Nurturely’s programs and communities are not just for parents. We believe all of society needs to be involved in supporting the transformational period from conception to parenthood, from womb to world, from birth to three. Whether you are a business owner, a student, a researcher, an organizer, or someone who is just curious – we welcome you!
Perinatal health is political. It is essential to amplify the issues that connect to our vision of a world where wellness for infants and caregivers is a human right, not a privilege. We believe all advocacy around perinatal health must center the urgent need for racial equity.
Addressing the intersections of perinatal health, racial equity, and climate action requires cross-sector and interdisciplinary collaborations. In our Wombs & Wildfires workgroups with Human Rights Watch, we center lived experience alongside technical expertise to co-create community-led interventions, communications, and policy recommendations to prioritize perinatal equity in wildfire resilience.
With a team trained in interdisciplinary research, we aim to bridge the often very separate worlds of academia and the community. Nurturely collaborates with academic institutions and community members to conduct research on the questions that matter most for the heath of parents and babies. Research has historically been used for oppression and harm, yet research can also be a powerful tool for positive change when used in a way that is culturally-responsive and community-centered.
Periodic days of advocacy and awareness are a great way to start getting involved with the world of perinatal health.
