Black Maternal Mortality is a national tragedy, a crisis here in America that affects black women more than any other group. Solutions to this crisis requires a multidisciplinary approach an approach that diminishes inequities in healthcare, as well as incidences of implicit bias but especially one that increases access to quality enriched healthcare services.
As a Mother, Gran Mother, Nurse Midwife, Black birth worker, and founder of A Woman's Way Inc,
I am committed to shifting the current pregnancy labor/birth paradigm towards one that represent an inclusive, quality-enriched, consciously driven model that creates a number of opportunities that lead to a reduction in maternal mortality rates within our communities,
Our 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 platforms focused on reducing risk for untoward outcomes for at risk women in the Charlotte North Carolina and surrounding communities. AWW center will also host a multitude of courses and community support groups including postpartum and breastfeeding support circles, womb healing and trauma circles, as well as doula training, Midwifery/Midwife Assistant certifications, and cultural competency certification trainings.
Concurrently, A Women's Way Birthing Center will provide a safe alternative birthing space for women to birth in a trauma free un-racialized open and empowering environment allowing them the freedom to connect to the core of their being. to bring forth the beauty of birth. Our center will represent a space where expectant mothers, couples and families are honored, welcomed, and respectfully supported.
AWW birth center will be recognized as a space where services are rendered free of implicit bias and micro-aggressive experiences. Our center will serve as a 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.
