Midwives and Doulas

Jane Crow Project has a specific page gathering the images and voices  of African American midwives and doulas. Recent updates include links to two videos: All My Babies, a classic film from the 1950s, it is both educational tool and poetic portrait of a black midwife and childbirth in the Deep South. (Public Domain) George Stoney's classic All My Babies is not only a profound portrait of midwife "Miss Mary" Coley, but also is a documentary record of the living conditions of African-American families in 1950s Georgia.

The second is an introduction to the Legacy of African American midwives, featuring Safia G. Monroe,  a midwife, historian, and public health professional with the mission of reducing infant and maternal mortality.
