Midwives for Black Lives is an ally movement created to improve prenatal, birth and postpartum outcomes for black families through investment in the education of black midwives.
While in midwifery school, Monica witnessed and experienced the many aggressions perpetuated against students and preceptors of color. This, along with all the statistics regarding poor maternal and infant outcomes that people of color face as a result of white supremacy, led her to create this scholarship.
Monica chose to focus on scholarships for black midwives as black families are the most vulnerable
