Moore’s priority concern is how a mother is treated during her pregnancy and birth. She distinctly remembers how her midwife made her feel when she was 16 and giving birth to her first child. “My neighbors in their 80s talk about their births. That was 60, 65 years ago,” said Moore. “I’ve had many women in their 60s, 70s and 80s tell me their birth stories. Birth stories matter. How you were treated during that vulnerable and sacred moment in your life sticks with you.”
