Student midwives of color training program

baby love

Midwifery care has clearly been shown to improve maternal outcomes. Therefore, training more midwives is an important part of the solution for the maternity healthcare crisis faced by Babies and Women of Color in The United States.  

Our Goals

  • To train students of Color to become Arizona Licensed Midwives and Certified Professional Midwives.

  • Support and provide culturally relevant frameworks. 

  • Support and guide the students in their creation, management and implementation of community health programs. 

  • To create a scholarship program to help cover student cost of books, equipment and testing.
