Muslim Families In The Parenting Community

How Nethal Abdul-Mu’min Is Helping Muslim Families Find Their Reflection In The Parenting Community

We are so happy to introduce Nethal Abdul-Mu’min to our listeners. In this episode we also give our listeners an opportunity to learn a bit about Islamic cultural diversity and how Nethal is helping Muslim families find their reflection in the Parenting Community.

We discuss the following and more:

  • Homebirth Midwifery in the era before legalization and the current state of access
  • Nethal’s background and what led her to become a Birth and Postpartum Doula and Childbirth Educator
  • Resources Nethal has helped develop as a Childbirth Educator, specifically for the Muslim community

Nethal Abdul-Mu'min

Nethal Abdul-Mu’min is a Birth and Postpartum Doula and Childbirth Educator who is a Homebirth mother of four. She is a scholar and translator of the Qu’uran and a translator for Arabic speakers in the women’s/family health setting and during labor and birth. She has been instrumental in the creation of the Muslim edition of the Cornerstone Childbirth Preparation Manual. Her experience as a new mom who didn’t understand her postpartum needs and later came to know about professional postpartum care was a real eye-opener. Layering this current political realities for Muslim women and their families and the forms of support she can offer them makes her a most-wonderful community member and asset. Her willingness to express and converse about all that we might be curious about and feel vulnerable in is what’s particularly lovely about her.
