New Episode dropping this week, stay tuned!

It’s Black Maternal Health Week, from April 11-17. This is a week to spread awareness, create community and advocate for Black Mothers.

Did you know Black women are 3-4 times likely than white women to die from pregnancy related complications?

Several contributing factors to this public health emergency:
> Institutional racism within the healthcare system
> Symptoms are often dismissed not appropriately followed up on by health care providers
> Social determinants of health; ie. access to affordable healthcare/prenatal care
> Overuse of invasive/aggressive procedures such as cesarean section
> Lack of health surveillance and prevention research
We’ve listed a couple resources/organizations below where you can find out more information

- The National Birth Equity Collaborative (NBEC)-Black Mamas Matter Alliance (BMMA)-MomsRising-The Black Maternal Health Caucus

If you have any additional resources, comments, birth stories comment below.

"Love is never any better than the lover. Wicked people love wickedly, violent people love violently, weak people love weakly, stupid people love stupidly, but the love of a free man is never safe. There is no gift for the beloved. The lover alone possesses his gift of love. The loved one is shorn, neutralized, frozen in the glare of the lover’s inward eye."

From "The Bluest Eye", Toni Morrison

Today in America, we watch white supremacy continue to unravel at the seams. At this moment, there is a wide range of emotions, some ranging from anger and frustration to joy and laughter found in Instagram memes.

I'm a believer that we must name evil for what it is. Racism and white supremacy are evil tools used to oppress and exact violence against poor communities, indigenous communities, black communities, and communities of color.

I put my hope in the people and continue to answer the call for healing and liberation.

There are just a few days left as we finish out the year. As Winter arrives, I encourage you to use this opportunity to slow down and reflect.

During hibernation, animals slow down their metabolic functions. This time helps to preserve energy to survive challenges like food scarcity.

I'm not leading any trainings, workshops, or speaking engagements for the rest of December. I will take the time to pray, meditate, and be more present with family.

What does the Winter season bring for you? What are you letting go of ?

I’ve already had my new year. Seeing through a few dreams before January. I thrive off taking chances and creating something new. I’ve never been worried about failure. I’ve often found myself putting my creative self on pause. It’s the creative that gives me joy and allows me to thrive in other areas.

THE 2nd IMAGE IS HIGHLY CHARGED.
As black bodies some of us struggle with being bought and sold. It is not only our money that’s often used as currently but our bodies. Capitalism is a long standing pillar of racial terrorism in America.

I smiled at the presence of this ad and at the same time ask how his breath and heart is doing. I give you love.
