Black Maternal Mortality is a national tragedy, a crisis here in America that affects black women more than any other group. This crisis requires a multidisciplinary approach an approach that increases access to care, diminishes inequities in healthcare, as well as incidences of implicit bias.
As a Nurse Midwife, Black birth worker, and founder of A Woman's Way, I feel a tremendous responsibility towards creating ways in reducing these statistics. A Woman's Way's current campaign goal is aimed at creating an educational birthing center that centers the needs of expecting women and families. Our center will continue providing educational forums focused on reducing risk for untoward outcomes for at risk women in the charlotte and surrounding communities. A Women's Way Birthing & Educational Center will provide a safe alternative birth space for women to intimately connect to the core of their spirit. This center will provide an opportunity for women to be honored where the pregnancy labor journey will be revered. Our center will represent a space where expectant mothers, couples and families are welcomed, supported, appreciated, Our center will be recognized as a space where services are rendered free of implicit bias and micro-aggressive experiences. Our center will be the platform where the voices of women are not silenced and where the concerns of our clients are validated and acknowledged.
A Woman’s Way Birthing & Educational center will provide the space to create the most impactful, satisfying, safe, liberating, life-altering, empowering pregnancy labor birth experience.
