Uplifting Black Women Through Traditional Birthing Practices with Shafia Monroe

To celebrate Black History Month, Expecting Justice is proud to partner with UCSF's National Center of Excellence in Women's Health and The California Preterm Birth Initiative to host a lecture on traditional birthing practices by Mama Shafia Monroe. Shafia Monroe is a veteran midwife, a cultural competency trainer, an herbalist, an author, and a motivational speaker. She is a channeler of the Black Granny Midwife and the keeper of cultural healing traditions.  She has spent over 40 years teaching the legacy of the 20th Century African American midwife and building organizations and businesses with their history as the foundation for better birth outcomes and community health. In 2016 Madame Noir noted her “Queen Mother of a Midwifery Movement,” because of her pioneer midwifery work in her home town.

She established the first home-birth midwifery non-profit, Boston Traditional Childbearing Group (TCBG) in 1978.  Monroe has trained over 2,500 doulas in ancestral birth and postpartum traditions and rituals of the African Diaspora.  Program 5:00 - 5:30pm | Refreshments served 5:30 - 7:30pm | Lecture by Shafia Monroe Remote Access This event is available for full participation online.
