Ayanna Robinson, PhD, MPH is a maternal and child health advocate and an award-winning public health professional with over 10 years of experience in conducting research, program evaluation, and program planning, primarily at the federal level. Her dissertation research, published in the peer reviewed journals, Digital Health and Journal of Human Lactation, applied Black Feminist Theory to explore the experience and outcomes of Black mothers who participate in mom-to-mom breastfeeding support groups on Facebook. As a public health researcher and evaluator who is experienced in qualitative and quantitative methods, she is committed to conducting research and translating that research into initiatives and products that dismantle systems of oppression, amplifies the voices of marginalized communities, and creates spaces for healing. In 2016, she founded Black Girls’ Breastfeeding Club, LLC. (BGBC). Through BGBC, Dr. Robinson has participated in community events for mothers, discussions with college and high school students, partnered with other maternal health organizations, like the Black Mamas Matter Alliance, and developed breastfeeding resources and educational tools. Decreasing the maternal mortalities of and improving breastfeeding rates among Black mothers are the areas of public health that Dr. Robinson is most passionate about. In 2020, she launched bEarth Work, an app that connects Black women and birthing individuals to online classes taught by Black birthworkers and other health professionals.
