Click here to tune in tonight, @9PM EST for the series premiere of “Shiphrah and Puah Stories”!

“Shiphrah & Puah Stories” celebrates Caribbean midwives and matriarchs, and documents the nutrition, rituals, and pampering practices that have kept Black women safe during pregnancy, childbirth, and throughout the postpartum period.

“Shiphrah & Puah Stories” is a call for us to save ourselves, despite dismal statistics for maternal and infant mortality rates among Black women and babies in America.
