We are in the midst of a crisis affecting Black birthing people and their babies. Black birthing people are dying 3-4 times more than their white counterparts in childbirth and the first year.
Black midwives have always offered holistic, community centred care - we need MORE of them. Black midwives make up less than 2% of midwives in the US. There are many systemic barriers to midwifery education and the work is taxing and exhausting. Black women deserve care and support. ALWAYS.
We are supporting Efe, doula and founder of @doulachronicles, in her final stretch of midwifery school. This journey has taken years and much love and attention from Efe, and we can't wait for her to be able to support more families.
Simply add to cart, and 10% of your order will go towards Efe's Midwifery Fund for the next two weeks (ends on 6/21).
