Programs

The Roe Center believes that access to comprehensive reproductive healthcare, regardless of income, is a human right.

 

The ROE Center program areas include:

  • Providing grants to low-income patients who wish to access prenatal classes, birth and/or post-natal care at a birth center that may not be fully covered by insurance.  Pregnant people accessing care in North Alabama who face financial barriers to care, can request an application. 

  • Providing training rotations at three sites in North Alabama to build a corps of clinicians in the South who are skilled in providing comprehensive reproductive health care.  Medical residents, midwifery and nursing students, Fellows and doulas will be trained in a unique model that integrates obstetrics and a midwifery  model of birthing.  To cover training fees and other costs, trainees can request an application.

  • Highlighting the reproductive health needs of under-resourced patients, with a particular focus on prenatal care and support for Black birthers by integrating research studies into the Center. We will build a relationship with the University of Alabama, Birmingham (UAB) Medical School, to undertake this research.
