Our Story

Hello, I’m China Tolliver; entrepreneur, writer, and world traveler.

Welcome to Rise Up Midwife.  

I launched Rise Up Midwife after dedicating many years to a professional career as a birth doula. This time of service ignited a passion for reproductive rights, gender inclusion and equal access to doulas and midwives; specifically in Black, Latinx, Indigenous and LBGTQ+ communities. This time of service was exhausting.  

So, I decided to rise up. 

I decided to become a midwife. 

Rise Up Midwife is so much more than an unique line of apparel, its my journey of intention and impact, and I invite you along side me. Follow my narrative on my blog Pushed Out. 

You are my doula, we rise together. 

On behalf of this creative, activist, bruja.
