Marinah Ferrell

Politics and traditional medicine are what led Marinah to midwifery, and she has a firm commitment to both political activism and birth work. Marinah has worked in innovative birth centers and medical facilities for international NGOs, in free­standing birth centers in the U.S, and is the owner of a long standing homebirth practice in Arizona. She is the Senior Advisor to the MANA Division of Access and Equity, the Network Coordinator for the Good Birth for All Network, and a founding board member of a community funded free clinic in downtown Phoenix.

Marinah is known locally, nationally and internationally for her advocacy work on behalf of midwives and vulnerable communities, and continues to champion the idea that community midwives and health workers can bridge professional midwifery with community traditions.
