Monnie - you are amazing!
Monnie has gone through Passion for Birth program and it is an honor to know her. I was so proud to learn that she is a California Nursing Excellence finalist. CA Nursing Excellenence
She was selected for her community service. She has created a volunteer program to give labor support to homeless, poor or mentally ill women. She is on-call 24-7 to match doulas who she trains and supports with women who arrive at the birthing center needing help. She writes grants, sells t-shirts to make sure the program stays afloat and "that women aren't along during the birthing ritual."
I hope she receives the award, that every single grant she applies for is funded and that she is able to continue her awesome program at SF General. She is certainly an inspiration to all of us.
