About Us


Melanated Midwives envisions the next generation of midwives of color diversifying the midwifery profession, providing care to the most vulnerable populations, and assisting in decreasing the infant and maternal mortality rates in the U.S., which have more than doubled over the past several years compared to other affluent countries.


MM provides financial support through two $5000.00 scholarships annually to student midwives of color. These scholarships seek to assist minority student midwives in funding some of their school related expenses as well as decreasing their school loan debt.

MM provides organizational mentorship intentionally to midwives of color as they matriculate successfully from midwifery school, obtain and retain employment in the healthcare workforce.
