Welcome!!

Hi! I just checked out the ICTC webpage (http://www.blackmidwives.org). What an important group! I've had friends really struggle with navigating the maze of hospitals and doctors out there just to find the health care they need to raise a child. It can be really difficult to find rich community resources and support during pregnancy. I see you are in Portland, too! Are there any upcoming events you will be doing around here? Please share with us about the Black Midwives and Healers Conference in Harlem. I'm sure you will meet some amazing people there!

Best wishes,

Lisa
