I am very excited to announce that I will be featured as a panelist at The Black & Healthy Conference: Nurture the Black Woman. I will be speaking on reproductive health and my experience being a doula and natural birth advocate. If you are a black woman in the Bay Area this is an event for you!
Come be in the presence of like minded Black Women sharing not just space but knowledge and wisdom. This event is nourishing mental, reproductive and holistic health by and for Black Women. This event features Reproductive/Women’s Health and Mental Health panels, Holistic Health workshops, Black Women Owned Business, Good Food, Good Vibes, and a Black & Healthy Gift Bag.
Thank you @cococoalition for creating this highly anticipated and much needed event.
Meditation is more than sitting in silence. As instrumentalists our meditation often comes when we are creating with our instruments and voice. This sonic meditation features the wooden tongue drum Tinka Tong by feeltone. I love the sound of this instrument. It feels ancient yet futuristic. It is perfect for getting lost in the space of the sound.
It is with great pleasure that I share the news of progress in the San Francisco birthing justice movement. Supervisor Malia Cohen and Mayor London Breed have announced a new program that will create access to doula services for low-income Black and Pacific Islander families. These families face the highest risk of poor perinatal outcomes and need support for healthy births. This program is one step toward addressing disparities and bringing justice to birthing.
Many thanks to Expecting Justice and SisterWeb for placing urgency on this issue. They have been taking action for racial equity in birth outcomes and assure the the voice of the voiceless is being heard.
Join us for the Official SisterWeb Launch Party and Conversation with author Angela Garbes ("Like A Mother") on Friday September 28th 6pm at The Women's Building in San Francisco.
