MDDC is committed to the liberation of all peoples from cycles which result in end of life injustice. We support BIQTPOC, centering their power and celebrating their families. We are a coalitionary collective of death doulas and full-spectrum support advocates. We empower one another and our communities in our respective ancestral traditions as we uplift our community’s physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health.


We seek to undo the longstanding effects of how centuries of colonization, racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and other oppressions intersect with medical practices around birth and transition. We are dedicated to building autonomous strength, resilience and thriving outside of traditional healthcare systems for Oakland, especially East/Deep East Oakland, as resource dry and highly targeted neighborhoods.
