Wise African Women

Birth is the cornerstone of indigenous ways of life, by supporting home births Little by Little aims to advance indigenous health systems and join supporters of:
  • Safe homes for all families: one of the effects of colonization is that people of color are more likely to be in poor living conditions which makes it less safe or less desirable to birth at home.  We believe that all homes should be safe for birth with access to water and power.
  • Preventive care: The indigenous community midwifery model of care focuses on preventive care which reduces maternal mortality risk factors.  

Developing innovative, culturally relevant, effective midwifery practices and policies through the lens of traditional health and wellness.
