WombCare Values

Our value statements are captured in the 4C’s: cultural humility, competence, compassion and community.

Cultural Humility

WombCare Consulting’s work utilizes a cultural humility framework that enables BIPOC folks’ voices to be heard, understood and empowered with communication tools and resources to engage with the right service providers.


WombCare Consulting recognizes the need to apply a health equity lens when addressing the disparities impacting BIPOC folks during their reproductive years. Having a network of compassionate researchers, policy makers, clinicians, and collaborators engaged in this work is vital for healing to occur in our communities.


WombCare Consulting will ensure the highest level of competence when engaging with stakeholders when collaborating on projecting to bring sustainable solutions that will impact BIPOC communities for generations.


WombCare Consulting seeks to build capacity with stakeholders from federal agencies, health organizations, research institutes, community health centers, and various advocacy groups. Together, we can work to finding solutions to bring reproductive health justice to BIPOC folks in their health journey.

My Past Work Experiences

I have been a clinician in health promotion and chronic disease management for over 15 years with extensive leadership skills in program planning, implementation and evaluation. I have worked as a Registered Kinesiologist at the University Health Network serving patients with workplace injuries within an interdisciplinary environment.

My Why

My passion for health promotion and population health was the catalyst successfully complete a Master of Public Health and graduate Summa Cum Laude at the University of Montana in 2018. I have a sincere desire and calling to improve the health, wellness and policies that support and protect women particularly those of African, Caribbean and Black Canadians (ACB) during their reproductive years

During my graduate degree, I was fortunate to gain two exceptional internships in Los Angeles, California. I worked as a public health intern with the Association of Wholistic and Maternal Newborn Health (AWMNH). Together with the executive director, we planned, implemented and evaluated the 2015 Mother Friendly Childbirth Initiative (MFCI) conference to improve community-based doula care and midwifery services for minority group women. As a graduate student at the Pasadena Public Health department, I worked with the Maternal, Child and Adolescent Health director to develop evaluation tools for the Black Infant Health Program to improve its effectiveness for future expectant black mothers. These academic experiences inspired my research interests in reproductive health equity, implementation science, health policy and population-centered interventions.

My Present and future destination

To complement my academic acumen, my passion for ACB women is also fuelled by my own challenges with infertility, uterine fibroids and endometriosis. I am currently engaged in several exciting projects and papers with key partners at various health agencies to address the reproductive health concerns of ACB women and will help develop policies to improve their health outcomes.

Lolade Shipeolu


Medical Doctor (2021) graduated from the University of Ottawa

Why are you interested in research for the BIPOC community?

I feel the BIPOC community is underserved in real life, and underrepresented in the literature; in order to enact change, research gives us some data points which allows us to demand change that would hopefully positively impact the BIPOC community.

Samantha Lewis


BA in Political Science from the University of Waterloo, with minors in Psychology and International Studies. I am currently completing a Masters in Social Work at York University.

Why are you interested in research for the BIPOC community?

As a biracial Black woman, my interest in research within BIPOC communities is informed by my lived experiences and a desire to advocate for the community that I am part of. I believe that undertaking more research in and for the BIPOC community is necessary in order to make changes in the healthcare system that are informed by the people it is meant to help.

Kristen Bloomfield


BMSc from Western University with Honours Specialization in Microbiology and Immunology; MSc in Global Health from McMaster University.

Why are you interested in research for the BIPOC community?

As a Black woman who lives at the intersection of multiple vulnerabilities, I have witnessed and experienced the negative effects of oppression on our mental and physical health. I want to be part of systemic efforts to eliminate these inequities and improve the health of our communities.

Dua K


I am currently a 2nd year Kinesiology undergraduate student at McMaster University.

Why are you interested in research for the BIPOC community?

I admire that the W.O.M.B study is mostly run by women of colour. Until recently, it was rare to have an entire team of women, especially rare for a team consisting solely of WOC. This is a major step in the right direction for young girls, of all backgrounds, interested in STEM.

Shae D


I studied Sociology and English at the University of Toronto receiving my Honours BA as well as Research and Evaluation at Fanshawe College.

Why are you interested in research for the BIPOC community?

I am happy that the WOMB health study is inclusive of all populations who may experience reproductive health issues – trans and non-binary persons tend to be excluded in many contexts, especially health environments.
