About Black Sisters Midwifery

She has been serving in the field of Maternal-Child Health for over 10 years and has been caring for mothers and babies all her life. Christina is a mother to a beautiful daughter who's presence has totally transformed her life for the better. Before becoming a midwife, Christina worked as a Mother-Baby nurse for 6 years at Kings County Hospital Center in Brooklyn, NY (her hometown) teaching families everything from breastfeeding to car seat safety. She is a graduate from The Florida School of Traditional Midwifery in Gainesville, Florida; a 3-Year Direct Entry Midwifery Program.
Christina is passionate about centering and servicing black families where the disparities are grave. Everyday black mothers and babies are dying in childbirth from complications that are preventable and where the ratio of black midwives and birthworkers in the U.S. are few. Christina knows that when we empower our women we empower the world. In a need to train her own birth assistant, Christina created the Black Sisters Birth Assistant Workshop thinking it was just a one time event but soon she quickly realized the necessity for such a training was so vastly needed across the county. Christina saw there was a true need for healing, transformation and restoration within our communities in which we the people have all the power to do this for ourselves. To meet the demand for more trainings, Christina decided it was imperative to turn the workshop into an academy to elevate the level of excellence needed to meet such a calling.
Christina is now the the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Black Sisters Birth Academy formerly known as Black Sisters Birth Assistant Workshop. Black Sisters Birth Academy provides high-quality, cultural infused courses designed to train black women in becoming birth assistants also known as a midwife's assistant. Her aim through these empowering trainings is to end the high maternal and infant mortality and morbidity rates within the black community by increasing more black birth workers who reflect their communities and are richly rooted in their overall well-being. As a mother and a midwife, Christina is determine to alter the current narrative for black families wherever she goes as she presses forward being the change that needs to be seen in this universe. We have the POWER to change our world. Together we win.
