Who is better placed than a midwife to speak on behalf of babies and mothers and why marriage matters? Who has greater moral authority to speak to the family crisis of our time besides the woman who is on call 24/7 to bring new life into the world?
Check out the South Carolina-based Urban Midwifery Inc. and their 2011 “Campaign Against Normalizing the ‘Baby Mama’.”
At Urban Midwifery we believe that there are NO healthy babies, without FIRST healthy mamas! Urban Midwifery believes that there is a strong connection between the “Baby Mama Epidemic”, (single mamas having babies) which disproportionately affects the Black Community, and the high infant mortality rate, causing Black Babies to die more.
We know that married women typically have more financial resources. Also they have more emotional support and involvement from their spouses. This leads to more stability, better nutrition, and less stress. One of our largest goals is to promote marriage and family within the Black Community to ensure that pregnant women, and those planning pregnancy have the proper support, resources, and education. more
