We need more Black/Latinx/Indigenous/API/Mixed race midwives.
We can help reduce the barrier to becoming a midwife by starting a BIPOC/POC student midwife fund for Bay Area students. This fund will be available to any student midwife who identifies as Black/Latinx/Indigenous/API/Mixed race regardless of whether they are enrolled in a midwifery program. The money can be used for whatever students need to further their midwifery education and live a healthy, balanced life while trying to get that education. It will also provide a financial boost for new midwives getting their practices started.
I am in the early stages and am hoping to one day turn into a sustainable non-profit.
If you would like to learn more about the fund, or be a part of helping this fund grow I would really love and appreciate the support, collaboration, and guidance! If you would like to apply for the fund, please contact me, firstname.lastname@example.org.
