Black Midwives this Saturday on Some of Us Are Brave

This Saturday, certified midwife Sis. JayVon Muhammad out of Oakland, California will be at Muhammad Mosque #27 at 5350 Crenshaw Blvd (@ 54th) to present a seminar on homebirth and midwifery care, "The Solution to Pregnancy and Childbirth Issues in the Black Community."  The program is from 2-6 pm and admission is just $10.  

But before the event she'll be my guest, along with Shafia Monroe, veteran midwife and president of the International Center for Traditional Childbearing, and Western Region Student Captain Aminah Muhammad.

We will discuss the benefits of home births, and something that's new to me:  the "Baby Mama" epidemic, and how it impacts Black infant mortality.

Thanks for tuning in!  That's from 1-1:30 PM on KPFK, 90.7 FM in Los Angeles, 98.7 FM in Santa Barbara, and streaming live online at

I hope you won't but in case you miss the show, it can be heard along with some of our past shows for the next 90 days on KPFK's website through Audio Archives.

Meanwhile, here are some links to their websites:
