We are dedicated to helping women experience safe -- and empowering -- births!

The United States has  higher rates of mother or baby deaths than any other industrialized country, and these rates are even worse for African American women. We have the most expensive health care system; and the highest level of technology, yet we have the worst access. Our health care is available only to those who are able to pay for it -- or who have others to pay the bills for them.
We believe this is unfair.
We believe mothers and babies should not have to suffer because they are locked out of health care systems. We believe mothers and babies deserve the best -- PERSONALISED prenatal care -- and respectful treatment during pregnancy and birth!

Our Philosophy

We are committed to bring midwifery care to all women. Of all races, colors, and nationalities. From all cultures and classes.
We are women united in the desire to see all the earth's children living in peace, safety, and good health.
