Dr. Yashica Robinson    

Women’s Rights Activist, Obstetrician & Gynecologist

Dr. Robinson graduated from Morehouse School of Medicine in May 2004. She completed her Internship and Residency training in Obstetrics and Gynecology at University of Alabama, Birmingham in June 2008. She is a National Health Service Corps Scholar and has studied abroad.

Dr. Robinson focuses on providing individualized care for women of all ages and is committed to providing comprehensive women's health care. She maintains one of the lowest Cesarean rates and highest VBAC rates among Huntsville area OBGYNs.

Beyond her OBGYN clinic work at Alabama Women's Wellness, Dr. Yashica Robinson is engaged in a daily fight for women's agency over their bodies and lives. For more than 15 years, the veteran obstetrician and gynecologist has been delivering babies, offering exceptional care and providing abortion services in Alabama, the reddest of the red states, where she grew up and stayed to serve her community. After the governor signed the most restrictive anti-abortion bill in the country last year, banning nearly all related services and subjecting doctors who perform procedures to an abysmal felony charge and possible life in prison, Robinson filed an emergency motion against the state. She was joined by the ACLU and three independent clinics, but as the only individual physician named in the case, she's been harassed, received death threats and had to defend her hospital privileges to practice. Nevertheless, she persists, steadfast in her advocacy for women and her commitment to what's right.
