We are working on a Virtual International Day of the Midwife (VIDM) presentation and we could use some help from the communities of colors.
5-10 mothers of colors to write a short paragraph about why it was important to them to have been served by a midwife of color for her care and or receive her baby; and
5-10 midwives of colors to write a short paragraph about why it was important for them to take care of mothers of color and why they are uniquely qualified to care for them
“Midwives and pregnant persons of colors who share the culture, traditions, religions, social values and understandings, perspectives, mores, perhaps lifestyle, community and heart-language.”
Photos would be great toooo!
Doulas of colors are invited to participate too!
We need testimonials by April 17th. Please have them emailed to: DCBirthingHands@aol.com.
