*************************About The Facilitator*****************************

Sumayyah Franklin is a doula, an aspiring midwife, an organizer, and an artist. She is deeply humbled by the power of birth and aspires to primarily serve those least likely to have access to her services. She has been studying pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period since high school. She jokingly says that she first practiced as a doula when she was 3 years old, when her aunt gave birth to her first baby cousin. However, she has been a professional doula for well over 5 years. Her background as an artist, organizer, and an educator greatly informs her practice and extends out into her work as a facilitator.

In five years she hopes to be practicing as a midwife, a mother, and traveling around the world. Also, to have figured out her role in closing the gap in health deparities that plague the Black, POC, poor, queer, incarcerated, disabled and trans* communities. She is a visionary and determination fuels her as she treks on her path.

"I think that as oppressed and marginalized people, the most revolutionary thing we can do is heal," said Franklin. "If we obtain holistic lifestyles, we ... allow ourselves to thrive and get to a place where we don't have to fight anymore because we're whole." says Franklin.
