We are back from vacation and still talking about women, leadership, and black maternal health. This week we talk with United Black Birth Collective. We will be talking with Mental health specialist and student midwife, Weluna Finley; Midwife Tomasina Oliver, Grand Doula Basmah Karriem, and Midwife intern Zakiya Robinson.
UBBC is committed to protecting the sanctity of Black life through supporting Black birth workers, honoring the cultural traditions of Black birth, and informing communities of color of birthing options and choices. Our goal is to protect the birthing power of the Black community through the offering of culturally centered, quality care rooted in consciousness; provide supportive pathways of growth and development for Black birth workers; and promote unification of all interested in the advancement of Black birth within our communities. We are a collective of mothers, daughters, community members, birth workers, professionals, and healers that care about the future of our communities and the value of life within them. We believe in the principle and power of unity as we support one another and our communities’ health, well-being, and purpose.
