Hey there! Thank you for stopping by. I’m glad to see that you are interested in learning more about me, Sakina O’Uhuru and my practice Gentle Spirit Home Birth Midwifery Services
I have been providing maternal/child health care services since 1984. I have diverse clinical experience in pediatrics, OB/GYN, Family Planning and primary care. Up until 1996, I practiced as a Certified Physician Assistant providing care to women and children throughout community hospitals and health centers within the New York metropolitan area.
In 1997, I earned an M.S. from the SUNY Downstate Midwifery Program. (Board Certified in 1998.) For five years, I served as the Director of the Midwifery Service at Morris Heights Women’s Health & Birthing Pavilion (formerly known as the Childbearing Center.) I am the proud mother of a 25 year old son who was birthed by Midwives at what was then the Maternity Center of New York in 1986, and now, as a proud grandmother, who guided the births of both my youngest grandson and granddaughter.
- As your midwife, I am committed to providing comprehensive care that is safe and sensitive to your individual needs.
- I focus on providing care that is both wholesome and gratifying for every Gentle Spirit Midwifery client.
- As your Midwife I honor the sacredness of this journey by allowing the natural process to unfold while providing one-on-one support and continuous care throughout the pregnancy labor and birth.
- I embrace this journey openly and lovingly as a voice and advocate supporting women who exercise their right to alternative birth & health care options.
