I have a passion to see people find wholeness, purpose, joy and hope! We are supposed to band together to help one another so in addition to my work as a midwife I have partnered with several ministries and missions that align with my vision.
Ujima Maternity Network, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non profit organization established to address the Black Maternal and Infant health crisis in the state of Arkansas experienced by Black (expectant) mothers. Black birth workers and maternal advocates are dedicated to making positive impacts within the birthing community to help ensure Black mothers survive and thrive during their pregnancy, birth and postpartum experiences with advocacy, support and safety.
I am privileged to serve UMN, Inc at their monthly maternal care community outreaches every second Saturday of the month in Conway Ar. If you would like to attend the community outreach events you will need to register on their website.
Mama Imara is a Canadian not-for-profit organisation that seeks to serve and support safe birthing practices in low resourced areas around the world by providing financial support and leadership to midwifery-led clinics. Their pilot project, Amani Family Centre in Uganda, is located in one of Uganda’s poorest communities providing free (and vital) maternal health and family support. Uganda’s maternal mortality rate is one of the highest in the world at 343 maternal deaths per 100,000 live births. Mama Imara exists to raise funds to ensure free, dignified, and compassionate maternal care is continually available for these women through their pregnancy, childbirth, and postnatal period.
