“There are few leaders in the American maternal health system that I respect and admire more than Ginger and Lesley. They have improved the wellbeing of countless moms and babies, not only through their own clinical practices, but through building professional bridges and laying the foundation for how midwives and physicians, birth centers and hospitals, can and should work together.”

- NEEL SHAH, MD, MPP, FACOG

“Ginger has been my ideal model of professional midwifery for over 20 years...  It was Ginger’s wisdom and professional demeanor, tireless research into best practices and seasoned leadership that made the practice a success...  She combines a unique mix of experience, warmth, intelligence, practicality and passion which she brings to every project to which she commits.”

Grow Midwives

Half way through a great day scaling up and sustaining Midwives.

Started by meeting the CNM I am mentoring over this next year. We were paired by the ACNM Students and New Midwives Committee Mentoring Program. It was a gift to meet this emerging Midwife, learn about challenges starting her career and hear about new opportunities ahead. Discussions included how to become a recognized and contributing team member, how to develop dynamic collaborating relationships and how to gain value in your worth.

Second call with seasoned midwife seeking guidance on navigating challenges of a huge health system. A system that rapidly developed multiple practices under one umbrella with many clinical sites, while also being new to understanding the Midwifery model of care. We discussed how to understand, with precision vision, the health system expectations of the large practice, administrative workload expectations, and equitable salary among providers as leading topics.

The third call was a wonderful opportunity to engage with two Vanderbilt Midwifery students who set out to podcast programming content specific to students. Emili and Hannah were interested in my thoughts about the 'business of midwifery'. The 411 on job seeking, what you want vs need in a job, finding voice and how networking advances career opportunities. What a joy to spend an hour sharing! (pic below).

Next up, speaking to a group of emerging leaders from the Jewish Healthcare Foundation Salk Fellows Program. The content focus is on how to lead Activism and Change. I'm excited to share my journey of being a Midwife in the US, and highlight the urgent need to mainstream midwives in the US to improve health outcomes #2020yearofthemidwife

All to say, engaging and working alongside so many individuals and groups also interested in advancing Midwifery fills the soul. Here's to more days like today.

Grow Midwives

It is possible to blend work and relaxation. Take it from someone whose gear is often perceived as in continuous overtime.

Today it was an honor to work with two midwives trying to find their way thru less than desirable work situations and to demonstrate that there are always choices to be made. Stepping back and feeling affirmed that being right does not make reality simpler — but is one step toward finding what is next.

And often that includes understanding contractual boundaries, restrictions and responsibilities.

#GrowMidwives provided a comprehensive contract review, fielded multiple questions from midwives and a physician group wanting to start a midwife service, and supported direction for a future midwifery program.

In addition, the day included work to advance #MarchforMoms as a leading voice to improve perinatal health was a priority.

All to say YOUR work is important, and so is stepping away for self happiness.
