Our guest is Jane Drichta, co founder of the Global Motherhood Initiative. She’s a midwife and public health advocate who has recently been working with Yazidi women and has developed a woman-centered model for traumatized populations, including the Yazidi, as they face pregnancy and delivery in difficult areas such as refugee camps and in war torn regions.
Even though she is mostly on the road or based out of Seattle, she still considers Emmanuel Episcopal Church in Webster Groves “home.” Jane was back in St. Louis over the holidays and stopped in to talk with host Barbi Click about midwifery, the Yazidi women, and upcoming opportunities around the globe.
