Event Description: On February 22nd at 7:00 PM, join us for this empowering Black History Month Virtual Virtual Presentation “Restore, Reclaim, and Reform Black Midwifery” by The Counseling Midwife Barbara Verneus.

Did you know there are only 2% Black Certified Professional Midwives and 6% Black Certified Nurse Midwives? Did you know out of the 384 birth centers in the United States that only about 12 are Black-owned? When we speak of the maternal mortality rate it refers to deaths due to complications from pregnancy or childbirth and most of those deaths are happening to Black mothers versus their white counterparts at 4 times the rate. So what are some solutions? In “Restore, Reclaim, and Reform Black Midwifery”, Barbara Verneus will share some realistic ways we can participate in further protecting one of the oldest professions/vocations on the Planet.
