We always love having Mama Shafia Monroe as a guest on ‘guess who’s coming to radio??!!’- she always brings it back to that nurturing, warm spirit. As the founder of the International Center for Traditional Childbearing (ICTC); her work as an international educator, midwife and advocate inspires all those she encounters.
The ICTC will be having a fundraiser (celebrating international midwives month) on the 1st of May with a screening of Bringin’ In Da Spirit, honoring the contributions of midwives of African descent. The fundraiser “will help sponsor students and others to attend (the) 9th International Black Midwives and Healers Conference and aid our mission of reducing infant mortality, increasing breastfeeding rates in communities of color and training cultural competent doulas.”
Stay tuned TONIGHT (Thursday the 23rd), starting at 8pm (west coast time), 10pm (in the middle) and 11pm (on the east coast) on KBOO 90.7 fm (in Oregon); and kboo.fm worldwide!
**ICTC, the International Center for Traditional Childbirth, is at 2942 NE MLK.
