She is an activist in the birth community and founder of Birth United, a community dedicated to the representation of families of color in birth and whose mission is to bring awareness to women of color of the options available to them through the imagery of birth.
Welcome to America…
…where the land of the free was stolen from the natives and was built on the backs of slaves.
Where black mothers die at 3x higher of a rate than white mothers during pregnancy and childbirth…
And where our history is hidden just out of our reach.
Did you know that finding imagery of birth of slaves is basically nonexistent?
What do we have to show us that we were more than capable of birthing and caring for our birthing mothers, even during a time when our rights were (obviously) removed from us.
So, this is my interpretation, based on what little I could find on the subject, of “slave birth”.
