Recently, I was interviewed by Jessica Bloustein Marshall of WMHT. Our discussion focused on my chapter in the book 'Nobody Told Me About That: The First Six Weeks'.
Local Care Midwifery is recognized by American College of Nurse Midwives (ACNM) as a Best Practice. Actually, LCM received six recognitions this year: Best Practice awards in three categories, Core 4, and Triple Aim. It's kinda like winning the Trifecta (but without any money or grandeur.) Tooting my own horn doesn't come naturally to me but the LCM Business Owner (yep, that's me) says I should. So...
Yay Local Care Midwifery! Providing evidence based care rocks (and it works)!
On Tuesday, I took part in a press conference at the NYS Assembly highlighting Black Maternal Health Week, maternal mortality, a racial disparity in health outcomes. Spending time in the Capital with cameras and reporters and legislators puts me way out of my comfort zone but I put on my best face (and some lipstick) and did my part. Here is the statement I gave and some photos from the event.
