Midwifery Wisdom Podcast

Welcome back to the Midwifery Wisdom Podcast! This week, join host Augustine Colebrook in a captivating conversation with the inspirational Shafia Monroe.

Shafia, a renowned midwife, doula trainer, motivational speaker, and cultural competency trainer, graces us with an abundance of beautiful wisdom in this episode. She reflects on childhood experiences that shaped her holistic career and lifestyle and sheds light on her current efforts to foster equality for black midwives in the United States.

Augustine and Shafia delve into the realm of service-oriented work, exploring ways to support black students throughout their education and preceptor stages. Shafia generously imparts special advice for white midwives on how they can actively contribute to the growth and success of black, brown, and BIPOC midwives.

As we honor Shafia during Black History Month, we trust that her stories, experiences, and fervor will not only inspire but also motivate you to actively participate in the much-needed change within our country and the world. Tune in and be part of this enlightening conversation!
