In today’s episode, Trish looks at Canadian Midwives of Colour, a project led by Dr Karline Wilson, Dr Karen Flynn and Dr Cyrus Sundar Singh. The revelation of these stories highlights a part of Canadian history is not known. We discuss the representations of midwives of colour, the importance of their existence in the historical context, and how this knowledge empowers racialized midwives and midwifery students. The process of mining for facts and truth, unveils amazing stories of resilience and advocacy in Canada's earliest racialized immigrant and refugee communities. The project is consequently an act of social justice or healing for the racialized midwifery community.
