Birth is one of our greatest cross-cultural bridges. No matter where or who you are, we all have an experience of birth. It reminds us of our exquisite power and profound vulnerability, asking us to connect with ourselves in a manner we may have never touched upon before. The way we support women to become mothers has a profound influence on that family's development, and knock-on impacts for society as a whole. Israh supports women to have healthy, confident and attuned transitions into motherhood.
Israh has been a practising midwife for 9 years and is currently working in Bristol. She has worked with the Association of Radical Midwives, trained with esteemed global birth advocates and supported local birth groups, as well as organising study days for Independent Midwives to share their knowledge in Obstetric Units. She has worked in the UK and for grass roots organisations abroad. Midwifery has been pivotal in her life and continues to inform her practices both in hospital and in wilderness environments.
