About Sumayyah Franklin

Since a young person I knew I was called to serve my community as a midwife. I believe that every family deserves loving compassionate care by a provider who is thoroughly competent. As an apprentice midwife I have attended over 300 births. I began studying midwifery while studying abroad in Ghana, West Africa. Once I returned to the US in 2014 I primarily focused on home birth midwifery at Partera Midwifery.

Most recently I went to Uganda, east Africa to further my studies in midwifery at a high volume birth center. While there I gained many skills. I feel confident in my ability to serve, yet humble and open as a student of midwifery.

I offer loving compassionate care that is evidence based and intuitive. I believe that every person deserves support as they see fit during their journey into parenthood
