    Birthing While Black 4 - Bold Doula & Mamatoto Village

    in Women

    Please join Denise Bolds - Bold Doula and her special guest Aza Nedhari Executive Director of Mamatoto Village as the discussion of birthing while black continues. Denise Bolds, a certified birth doula in New York and MSW is the producer and host of Black Motherhood Empowerment. 

    Mamatoto Village is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization, devoted to training the next generation of Community Birthworkers and Midwives. ?Mamatoto Village (MV) began in 2008 as a vision written for a graduate school paper, by Aza Nedhari. In 2012, after having worked in a for profit capacity as Doulas, and feeling as if their own training had been inadequate, Aza Nedhari and Cassietta Pringle, decided to form a collaborative partnership and bring Mamatoto Village to life. Witnessing the disparities and lack of cultural empathy in Maternal Health professions, MV founders saw a critical need for the creation of a career-training program for birth workers of color and for direct maternity support services to medically underserved populations.    

    Mamatoto's  mission is two fold: to provide complimentary and low-cost maternity support services to women and their families during pregnancy through the first year of the child's life, and to facilitate the increase of qualified women of color serving in the Maternal Health profession.                      

     Aza Nedhari can be reached on Facebook and at: http://www.mamatotovillage.org                    Denise Bolds can be reached here on Blog Talk Radio - Follow Black Mother Empowerment. She is also on Facebook as Bold Doula and at:http://www.BoldDoula.com

    in Education

    Unfortunately, one of the most overlooked and devalued groups of people are those with disabilities.

Our special guest is Dr. Will Moreland, a military veteran and author of the critically acclaimed book Genius Potential.  He is known as  America's #1 Leadership Life Trainer and appears frequently on national television shows to share his insights on leadership, personal development and current events.

    in Religion

    Today's institutional church has some very serious troubles.
    Does it resemble the family of God spoken of in the New Covenant?
    Does anybody really see the disparity?
    How is it that almost no one appears to notice that there are almost no similarities?

    The challenge of “no spiritual discipleship” that the institutional church has rarely if ever addressed, and probably cannot address, has devastating eternal effects. Why is it that these modern "spiritual men/women" are not taking their followers back to the place that is so clearly outlined in scripture?

    Join us as we immerse ourselves in the depth of understanding the Word of God. The phone lines will be open for your questions and/or comments live on air at
