Featured Collaborations

UCLA Midwifery Community Townhall and Email Campaign

Earlier this year, in response to UCLA Health abruptly terminating its midwives/midwifery program Stevie co-organized a Community Townhall and email campaign to call for accountability, transparency, and acknowledgement of the trauma and impact that UCLA-Health’s actions have had on the midwives, patients, and community at large. The work of these birthworkers of color emphasized the importance of midwifery care both in & out of hospital, and to reassert that birth workers are non-disposable essential workers during COVID-19 and beyond. 

 

This is a community issue that has further & future implications for all of Los Angeles County, birthing people as a whole, and especially birthing people of Color who will continue to be most impacted by these types of decision making.
