The amazing Jennie Joseph will be teaching/presenting on Sunday November 16th here in Buffalo. It's a 6 hour workshop/presentation that teaches how to reach, serve and empower disadvantaged women & their communities in pregnancy--achieving healthy pregnancies, natural birth, healthy babies, breast-feeding and parenting. Jennie Joseph has a Free-Standing Birth Center in Florida, a midwifery school, teaches doulas and created the "JJ Way". Her methods increase birth weights, decrease Cesarean Section rates, decrease infant mortality. We are so very lucky she will be here in Buffalo which has a universally high Cesarean Section rate among area hospitals but marked disparity in infant mortality rates--one rate for the affluent, another, much worse one for communities of color. Anyone that cares about this outrage--nurses, midwives, pediatricians, Obs, administrators, students, activists--you will want to attend! ... See MoreSee Less
