Black History Month Midwives 2022
Did You Know: Black Midwives
Most midwives, including enslaved women, drew upon traditional healing knowledge and practices passed down through generations.
Throughout the years, despite efforts to marginalize them by the medical establishment, Black midwives have continued to play a critical role in delivering babies and training the next generation of Black birthworkers.
This #BlackHistoryMonth we join, #NICHQ in celebrating the legacy of Black medical practitioners, birth workers, doulas, and midwives in honor of the 2022 theme of Black History Month: Black Health and Wellness.
