Smiles like these from a GCBC momma and baby are really at the heart of Ninotte’s work. Aren’t these smiles infectious? #cutebaby #beautifulsmile #motherhood #motherandbaby #blackbaby #hatianchildren #haiti #midwifery #midwivesforhaiti #blackmidwivesmatter #haitihealthcare #birthcenter #womenshealth #birthmatters #midwiferymodelofcare #haitianbabies #blackbirthsmatter #inspiringwomen #cpm #haitiannonprofit #thursdaymotivation
A midwife and her bag. Sometimes it just the simple tools; a blood pressure cuff, a stethoscope, a scale that makes all the difference for a sick mama or an underweight baby. Postpartum visits improve health outcomes! Thanks Ninotte!
Ninotte is back to work after an amazing time in the States meeting with donors, attending fundraisers and planning for our big build! Thank you to everyone who came out and supported Grace Community Birth Center, making our work possible! Also sending out a very big thank you to Bryan and Emma of Nature, A Michigan Retreat for hosting an incredible evening for Ninotte to share her work with so many. If you're in the Traverse City area and haven't checked out the retreat center you need to!
