Fatima has been a birthworker for over 20 years. She began her path in the birthworld as a DONA certified doula and a HealthConnect One Community Based Doula trainer. In 2008, she started her journey to midwifery. This led to her attendance of births in Phoenix, Tucson, El Paso, Uganda and Haiti.
Fatima has worked in the local Phoenix community since 2004, where she was employed with the Phoenix Birthing Project focusing on reducing high infant mortality rates in the African American community. Since then she has continued to focus on improving birth outcomes and experiences for families of color, reducing health disparities and infant mortality while helping families to empower themselves as a unit to thrive.
For the past 7 years, Fatima has joyfully worked as a student midwife with Wendi Cleckner LM CPM of Freedom and the Seed where she continues as a birth worker. In addition she delightfully attends births with Mona Ziems LM, CPM of Light Upon Light Midwifery.
Fatima has a Master's Degree in Public health from A.T. Still University and a Bachelor of Science in Plant Biology from the University of Arizona. One way she utilizes these skills is through work with the local South Phoenix Community of Practice to improving quality food access, food autonomy and wellness for families in the South Phoenix Area. Currently focusing on the:
2025 Food Action Plan:
Goal 1: Healthy Food for All
Goal 2: Strengthening our Local Economy
Goal 3: Celebrate Local & Diverse Agriculture
Goal 4: Maintain a Sustainable Environment
Goal 5: A Resilient Food System
