I am so, so excited to launch a new website today, Asian-American Midwives!
I have long believed that there is a midwife for everyone and that the strength of our profession lies in the diversity of midwives available to serve and teach in our communities. I created Asian-American Midwives to celebrate and highlight the often hidden diversity of Asian-American midwives who care for women across the life-span.
My hope is that over the next month and half, we will be flooded with submissions of profiles of Asian-American midwives from across the country. We’ll share these profiles during Asian Pacific Islander Heritage Month in May.
How can you get involved?
- Share the website far and wide, encourage Asian-American midwives you know to submit a profile!
- Write a guest blog post about Asian-American midwifery history or women’s health traditions.
- Engage in conversation in your community about diversity in the midwifery community. Share your ideas with us on Twitter!
