On Wednesday, October 10th, Certified Professional Midwife Ninotte Lubin will be giving a lecture on Haiti’s dire maternal/fetal health outcomes. Ninotte was certified in 2015 after studying childbirth and midwifery following Haiti’s devastating earthquake of 2010. She is currently working on the Grace Community Birth Center, a three-acre plot of land in Grand Bassin, Terrier Rouge where she teaches sex education classes, trains traditional birth attendants and conducts prenatal and postpartum visits.
At this lecture Ninotte will discuss her work as a midwife as well as the process and development of her non-profit organization, the Grace Community Birth Center. She will present the history and ongoing development of the project and share her hopes for Haiti’s future, including her proposed solutions to the crises of maternal and fetal health.
The event will begin at 5:30pm on Wednesday, October 10th, and will take place in Rocky 200. Following the 45-minute lecture will be a Q&A session and light reception, as well as Haitian artwork for sale by donation.
