Q U E E N I N G U P.
I have sat in circle with so many women during our retreats and also outside of those spaces, and participated in conversation about the absolute need to get back on our thrones as birthing women and guardians of the children that we are bringing in.
We are the consumers and if we do not demand more from those who serve us then we will get less, much less, than we deserve and desire.
Unless we ask for change, things will remain the same.
For many birthing people now, this fact is creating a very solitary birthing experience. Whilst some may love that, others feel forced into it by default.
It is time to Queen up and be aware of our capabilities.
I love the words below by @tassieteaches
‘This is the kind of unbothered-ness we need surrounding pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding! The I-don’t-care-what-bystanders-think attitude! @Scrapperella looks natural, comfortable and divine! The look on her face dares anyone to say what she “shouldn’t be” doing! She dares anyone to say what she is “not allowed” to do. She dares anyone to impede upon her divine feminine rights! THIS IS THE MOVEMENT we need! Moms, take back your DIVINE FEMININE RIGHTS: get out the hospitals, know who you are, know what you are, BE who you are! It’s time out for playing hokey pokey with the various “systems” amidst us: the hospital system, especially. Of course there’s always a caveat: hospitals are for emergencies only. If you or your baby’s life is in danger, a hospital may be the best place. However, 80% of pregnant moms who give birth at hospitals are considered “low risk”. Y’all, that means all of those moms (which is a very staggering amount) can SAFELY and SUCCESSFULLY have a homebirth!!! What are we waiting on?! I’m here for guidance if you need me.’ #UnassistedBirth #Freebirth #WorldWideCute #BlackDoula #BlackMidwife #Ancestral #Unbothered #BlackMomsDoBreastfeed #BlackMamasMatter #BlackMaternalHealth #MaternalJustice #BlackEmpowerment #BlackConsciousness #LevelUP #YOUareWhoYouAre #Goddesses #RaiseYourVibration #BirthIsTheRevolution #BMHC18
