Black Women's History Conference: Safe in a Midwife's Hands
Program Type:History & Genealogy
The Black Women's History Conference presents an author talk and book signing with Linda Janet Holmes for her recent book, "Safe in a Midwife's Hands" Mad Creek Books (2023).
Due to a less-than-positive experience as a Black woman giving birth in the 1970s, Linda Janet Holmes determinedly learned about alternative birthing traditions and the Black women behind them.
In her latest book “Safe in a Midwife’s Hands,” Holmes shares the lessons and experiences of both Southern and African midwives.
This information is vital, especially at a time when the midwives’ knowledge and holistic approaches are essential counterbalances to a medical system that routinely fails Black mothers and babies.
