Midwife Sakina O'Uhuru

Hi there, my name is Midwife Sakina O'Uhuru, a dedicated midwife with over 25 years of experience in the field of midwifery. Throughout my career, I've had the privilege of working predominantly in out-of-hospital settings, where I've been honored to assist thousands of women and families in achieving a satisfying, safe, transformative, joy-filled, loving pregnancy, labor, and birth experience they deserve. My journey in midwifery has been enriched by my profound belief in the power of trust and respect, which has allowed me to forge meaningful, lasting relationships with my clients.

I hold a Master's degree in Midwifery and have had the privilege of serving as the Director of the Childbearing Center in the Bronx, New York, for five years. My approach to midwifery is grounded in the core values of nurturing trust, respect, and cultural responsiveness. I am deeply committed to providing care that is safe, free from harm, and devoid of implicit bias. By centering my clients' unique needs and experiences, I strive to create a care environment that is not only trauma-informed but also promotes healing and empowerment throughout the entire childbirth journey.

My commitment to providing culturally responsive care extends to every aspect of my practice. I firmly believe that every woman and family deserves care that is not only free from violence but also deeply attuned to their cultural backgrounds and individual needs. Over the years, I have witnessed the profound impact of this approach, fostering a sense of empowerment and ownership over one's birth experience.

Through my extensive experience, I have fine-tuned my skills, staying up-to-date with the latest developments in midwifery to provide the highest standard of care. My goal is to create a birthing space where you feel heard, valued, and supported. I am dedicated to upholding the principles of birth justice, ensuring that every person, regardless of their background, receives the care they deserve during this transformative journey.

I look forward to walking this path with you, embracing the joy and wonder that childbirth can bring while upholding the values of safety, respect, trust, and cultural responsiveness. Together, we can create a birthing experience that leaves you feeling empowered and cherished, as you welcome new life into the world.

Midwife Assistant 

Ashley Davis 

I have served the community for many years as a doula. I am a graduate of A Wombman Way Warrior Midwifery Training. As a midwife assistant , I provide traditional and culturally competent support.


I have 4 children and though each birth experience was vastly different, they have something in common they each have ignited a continuous fire along my journey.


From the lessons learned in my own birth experiences and the experiences of birthing families I have served, I believe every family should have a special and meaningful childbirth experience.

BOOK: Journey to Birth

This book is about my life journey as a home-birth midwife. It includes the many home births I attended during my sixteen years as a practitioner, with particular attention to the last ten years. During this journey, I have learned a myriad of life lessons. Most of them strengthened me and my ability to continue on this path. There were incredible challenges, both joyful and painful. The most challenging lessons happened to be the most life-changing and transformative. Those lessons impacted my life tremendously, first as a woman, second as a mother and grandmother, and most assertively as a basic human being.
