My great grandmother Amelia "Millie" Weaver Roberts was a midwife in both slavery and freedom in Loudoun County VA.
I have a page on my website dedicated to her.
I am glad to see that our midwives are finally getting their due respect. So many of them did far more than delivering babies - they were the repository of healing knowledge passed down in families, which saved many lives.
