Welcome to Partera Midwifery
Meet the Apprentice Midwife
Greetings, My name is Sumayyah Franklin and I am an advanced apprentice midwife at Partera Midwifery. Since a young person I knew I was called to serve my community as a midwife. I believe that every family deserves loving compassionate care by a provider who is thoroughly competent. As an apprentice midwife I have attended over 300 births. I began studying midwifery while studying abroad in Ghana, west Africa. Once I returned to the US in 2014 I primarily focused on home birth midwifery at Partera Midwifery. Most recently I went to Uganda, east Africa to further my studies in midwifery at a high volume birth center. While there I gain many skills. I feel confident in my ability to serve, yet humble and open as a student of midwifery.
I offer loving compassionate care that is evidence based and intuitive. I believe that every person deserves support as they see fit during their journey into parenthood. It has been such a blessing to serve my community under the preceptorship and guidance of Andrea. I would be honored to serve you!
