In this Season 3 premiere episode, Isis and Chae interview Nubia Martin a Black midwife based in Yonkers, NY. Nubia is the proud mother of 5 -- two daughters and three sons. Her first 2 babies were born in the hospital. And her last 3 were born at home with midwives. After seeing a need in her community, Nubia has actively worked to fill that need by providing necessary childbirth education, lactation support, and now midwifery care to a population that has been historically disenfranchised and to this day still feels the effects of segregation and racial health disparities. Her organization, Birth from the Earth, Inc., activates and engages the community through perinatal education, comprehensive trainings, inclusion, and holistic care.
