About the Instructor

“In my 10 years as a midwife, I have worked with a diverse collection of families and caught hundreds of babies; from a rural hospital in Kenya, to a private practice in Western MA, to a community health center in Iowa.

With a Master’s in Public Health from Boston University, a Master’s of Science in Nursing from the Yale School of Nursing and a baseline commitment to reproductive justice, I have been a friend to a mom in Africa who learned her HIV status shortly after giving birth. I have been a doula, laboring through long nights with women doing the hardest physical work of their lives. I have studied public health systems and policy and how it all affects the women in your community. I have spent hours learning the mechanics of labor and how to best care for women in labor.”
