Maroon Calabash is our December Share the Plate recipient.
Maroon Calabash is a Black-led nonprofit organization that provides a space for Black birth workers in Milwaukee County to practice liberatory Reproductive Justice at the intersection of cultural traditions and modern medicine.
Maroon Calabash partners with Next Door Foundation and provides support to Black pregnant and postpartum folxs by providing doula services. They provide a deeper network of support for their clients that is nonjudgmental and offers full spectrum reproductive care. They also run a number of drives for supplies to meet the needs of postpartum folxs including diaper drives (this includes donations of baby wipes, postpartum pads and ice packs) as well as soliciting donations of gently used baby supplies, furniture and clothes.
