B3 -Bumps, Birth and Belonging CIC was created in direct response to Black maternal health crisis in the UK. The non profit organisation is lead by an experienced international Midwife and mother of 4, Nicole. She personally and professionally understands the pressures of parenthood, poor mental health and the unique challenges and nuances of being Black & pregnant.

Nicole and the team strongly believe in informing you about your rights, consent and self advocacy so that you can be as confident as possible in making the decisions that are right for you and your pregnancy and in parenthood.

Our experienced team of professionals are here to support you every step of the way, providing you with expert knowledge and resources to inform you about pregnancy and the early postnatal period.


Pregnancy, Birth and beyond can (and should be) a joyful experience.

Knowledge is power and the power is and always should be, in your hands when it comes to your body. Virtual pregnancy information sessions coming soon....


B3 are committed to making the perinatal period (Pregnancy - 2 years old) caring, safe, satisfying and equitable, for families of African and Caribbean descent within a generation.


•At our core is the provision of culturally-competent, professional services to enhance the holistic wellness of each and every parent we encounter(Mental, Physical, Emotional and Spiritual).


•Provide Peer Support, continuity, antenatal and parenting education, solidarity and community for pregnant and new parents in the first 1001 days of a baby’s life.


•Raise awareness of and support the reduction of the significant difference in health inequalities and the maternal & infant mortality rates.


•Improve access to evidenced based perinatal mental health provision


Why we do what we do...

At B3-Bumps Birth and Belonging CIC we are dedicated to reducing the maternal physical and mental health inequalities faced by Black women and their babies here in the UK.

  • Black women are 4x more likely to die in pregnancy and up to the first year of their babies life.

  • Stillbirth and neonatal death rates are highest for Black babies

Imagine going into motherhood with those types of numbers hanging over your head AND trying to experience your

human right which is .... joy. 

We strive to provide real solutions to managing their care in the system they find themselves in, by providing evidenced based options, resources and a unique insight into the regulations of Health care professionals.

We believe that every woman should receive the highest quality of care and support throughout their pregnancy, birth and postpartum journey and we will keep on going long after the headlines and social media trends. 

Thank you
