Karinda Roebuck

Executive Director at Chatham Organizing for Racial Equity Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill Area

Karinda is a Certified Nurse-Midwife who has been practicing midwifery since 2008. She began her midwifery career while on a field study for her medical anthropology degree in Cape Coast, Ghana. Karinda has dedicated her career to listening to women and acting as guardians of their pregnancies and birth experiences. She has been trained in the Centering Pregnancy framework and has done research on the higher incidence of postpartum depression among migrant, Latinx women. She has worked on initiatives to expose racism both within midwifery and by midwives. She has done multiple trainings and presentations on the history and sequela of the removal of the Black granny midwife from small communities. Birth equity and cross-cultural birth customs have always been her passion and is what led her to racial equity work with Chatham Organizing for Racial Equity in 2018.
