Taking our Mother’s & Grandmother’s Skill, Knowledge, & Love For Birth To The Next Generation
This is Susannah Lumley, Brandi’s great, great, great grandmother. She was born March 2, early 1820’s and died February 20, 1879. She traveled to births via horse and buggy.
This is Bertha Eileen Plunk, Brandi’s great, great grandmother. She was a horse & buggy midwife from the deep hills of Tennessee.
This is Brandi’s great grandmother, Martha Beatrice Pritchett, better known as ‘Granny.’ She once said, “Families in and around Finley would call on me to help the doctor deliver their baby. A family began calling me ‘Granny’ and everyone took it up and never knew my real name. My mother (not pictured) delivered babies before me, I just followed in her footsteps. I would look after every baby for about 3 days.” Granny was the community Midwife and Postpartum Doula of her day.
