Welcome to 2022! If you’ve been following along with us, in all of our accomplishments and legacies, you’ll see why we’re so excited to celebrate 7-years!
From standing on the shores of Ghana, West Africa and that initial vision, to over exceeding our the first goal of our capital campaign, to becoming Missouri’s 1st Black CPM, moving full circle from our early days at the Ferguson Library to opening our very own fully functioning Midwifery Clinic in the height of a pandemic, to training over 200 Doulas in the St. Louis region, serving over 800 families in the city, and being awarded with the prestigious Merck for MOthers Safer Childbirth Cities Initiative Grant, we have so much to be thankful for, and this year, we are celebrating, “The Legacy of Black Birth in St. Louis!”
