Birth Workers of Color Scholarship: Matching Scholars to Scholarship to Reduce Disparities in Birth Outcomes



The goal of this website  is to connect Birth Workers who desire to work in maternity care fields in America with programs of education and individuals that can offer help.

Every pregnant woman deserves a Midwife, Doula, Childbirth Educator, or Breastfeeding educator/counselor from her own culture if she so desires. We know from evidence-based studies that good maternity care, education, and support prevents prematurity, reduces complications and in general improves birth outcomes. This is a matter of life and death for certain groups in America at the present time.


Holy Gazebo!

Holy Gazebo!  As it is getting cold outside, we decided to have a gazebo built.  What a treat the gazebo will be once it is done: classes outside, lunch with sister midwives, study alone, oh my!
