The Women Who Caught The Babies : A Story of African American Midwives, Hardback Book

The Women Who Caught The Babies : A Story of African American Midwives Hardback

Illustrated by Daniel Minter

Hardback

Description

The Women Who Caught the Babies highlights important aspects of the training and work of African-American midwives and the ways in which they have helped, and continue to help, so many families by "catching" their babies at birth.

The blend of Eloise Greenfield's poetry and Daniel Minter's art evokes heartfelt appreciation of the abilities of African-American midwifes over the course of time.

The poem "Africa to America" begins the poetic journey.

The poem "The Women" both heralds the poetry/art pairing and concludes it with a note of gratitude.

Also included is a piece titled "Miss Rovenia Mayo," which pays tribute to the midwife who caught newborn Eloise.
