WHO WE ARE
Sista Midwife Productions is a birth advocacy organization based in New Orleans, LA. We provide education, training and consultations for communities, birth workers and organizations that work with child bearing families.
Our Mission is to improve pregnancy and birth experiences and to eliminate perinatal disparities by increasing the number of black birth workers, teaching families about their rights and options; and creating transparency and accountability within childbirth education and the medical obstetrical system.
We use workshops, seminars and edutainment experiences to educate communities and to move them toward a paradigm shift to change the ways they think about conception, pregnancy, birth, and mothering.
