Illinois Birth Justice is dedicated to supporting incarcerated pregnant women and new mothers before, during, and after birth to build positive futures for themselves and their families.
“I had not previously met this woman, who had a long, but uneventful birth that she was able to really participate in. After her baby was born she said to me ‘having you with me when my daughter was born let me know what it would have been like if I had had a mother who loved me."
- Mary Fauls, former doula at Cook County Hospital for women incarcerated at Cook County Jail
