Maternal Monologues for Community Conversations and Action
Maternal Monologues are community presentations of stories by women/birthing persons, their partners, and supporters along the journey of birthing and maternal health. These stories are based on real experiences, and designed to serve as a tool for communities to tell their own stories for healing, raising awareness, and mobilizing for change.
Mary Denise shares her birth experience with her son David, over 40 years ago, after learning that racial disparities in care and outcomes still persist decades later.
*Advisory: Content describing pregnancy loss, miscarriage, and traumatic birth experiences is included.

The way that each community presents its Maternal Monologues may look different from place to place. They can be in-person or virtual. You can be as creative as you’d like in your production. This toolkit is designed to provide a guide for getting started.
