    Episode 122: Dr Tanya Khemet and Dr Keisha Goode say Black Midwives Birthed America and are Central to Black History

    Thank you for listening to She’s Got Drive. Today we have the last in out Black Mama series of interviews with midwife Tanya Khemet and Academic Keisha Goode, both President and Vice President of National Association of Certified Professional Midwives. We talk about the racism faced by Black midwives, the decimation of Black midwifery, and the need to address the structural barriers for Black Midwives today. And how Black Midwives is an answer to the Black Maternal Health crisis.  My name is Shirley McAlpine. Welcome to She's Got Drive.


    So grab your cup of tea, or drink of choice  and you might want to take a walk as you listen to these two amazing and inspiring women. 


     


    Dr Tanya Khemet Taiwo  considers herself blessed to be the mother of three beautiful girls who were all born into the hands of midwives.  After serving as clinic administrator and staff midwife of The Birthing Project Clinic for eight years, she became one of the founding mothers of Birth and Family Health Center, women’s health clinics housed in community health centers located in medically underserved areas of Sacramento.  She currently works in a Federally Qualified Health Center, continuing to care for low-income families in a multi-disciplinary setting. She comes from a family tradition of midwives.  She joined the NACPM Board of Directors in the fall of 2012, and has been President for 4 years. Dr. Khemet Taiwo is an assistant professor of midwifery at Bastyr University, and a research Fellow at The
    Birth Place Lab at the University of British Columbia. At the Birth Place Lab she’s collaborating on the Giving Voice to Mothers Study, a research project that examines how race, ethnicity and birthplace affect maternity care in the United States. Her dissertation research in epidemiology examined how prenatal socioeconomic and psychological stress impacted child neurodevelopment, and how these stressors are amplified by environmental exposures.


     


    Dr Keisha Goode  joined the Board as the first appointed Public Member. She is currently a Visiting Assistant Professor of Sociology at The State University of New York College. Her primary research area is Medical Sociology with specific attention to the medicalization of childbirth and the historical and contemporary complexities of Black midwifery in the United States.

    EPISODE 121: Black Mothers are Dying - And It's a Scandal says Jennie Joseph and Mars Lord

    EPISODE 121: Black Mothers are Dying - And It's a Scandal says Jennie Joseph and Mars Lord

    Today we  have an important episode  with Jennie Joseph and Mars Lord. Its the first time I have had two women in the guest chair. We discuss female maternal health and Black and Brown Community.  We are in crisis. In our conversation we talk about what is going on and what is needed.  


    So grab your cup of tea, or drink of choice  and you might want to take a walk as you listen to these two amazing and inspiring women. 


    JENNIE JOSEPH  is one of the most well-known and respected midwives and advocates worldwide for family-centered healthcare. She is widely accepted as a hero in birthing circles because of the positive outcomes she has seen through her simple yet profoundly successful model of prenatal care known as The JJ Way®. Joseph is a British-trained midwife who moved to the United States in 1989 and has worked as an independent midwife in Florida since then. The JJ Way® is a midwifery model of care that simplifies prenatal care, removing barriers to care in a medical system which is known for having many hoops to jump through.


     


    MARS LORD: Award winning doula and birth activist Mars Lord has been a birth keeper for well over a decade.  She has had the privilege of working with hundreds of families. A birth activist, with a desire to see the ‘colouring in of the landscape of birth’ and finding out the reasons for the maternal and neonatal morbidity rates amongst the BAME community, Mars created Abuela Doulas a doula preparation course primarily, but not exclusively, for women of colour. Her desire for reproductive justice led to the creation of the ‘Reproductive Justice Retreat’. Mars was recently recognised in the Mayor of London's Hidden Credits campaign and continues to speak out for cultural safety and reproductive justice.

Reviting Experience

I was honored to be a featured guest for episode 84. Shirley, is an amazing interviewer and I really enjoy the overall interviewing process. I felt as if I was just having a conversation with a friend. Which is very important when discussing important and intimate details. I thank Shirley for making this process and interview as smooth as possible. I thank God that I was able to partake in such an amazing podcast and brand.
