The apprenticeship model means that midwifery students like me are not usually compensated for the births they attend. This monthly membership helps me to pay for food, snacks, and gas while I'm out attending births!
I'm a midwife-in-training based in Urbana, Illinois. I'm an avid supporter of community birth and training more BIPOC birth workers. The more my community pours into me, the more I can pour into my community!
