Woman outside a school holding her identical twins. Sinende, Benin - Sheila McKinnon
In the postpartum time, I observed that the Asian women I served had excellent care from their own families. This is their culture—to worship children who are closer to God, to elevate women who have become new mothers, and to serve them as they grow strong after childbirth. Sadly, I came to see more clearly how my sisters in the West could expect little or no postpartum care or support, either from health-care providers or from friends and family. The modern lifestyle embraced by the West, sought after and imitated all over the world, has so fractured families that postpartum women today accept and expect to be isolated. I wonder at a culture that decades ago put men on the moon, yet chooses to ignore the most significant life passage of women. In Asia, it is a quite commonly held belief that life becomes richer once one has achieved parenthood. In the West, I often see how my women friends are somehow made to feel diminished when they have a baby.
I grew up between worlds, with an Asian mother and an American father, and so I have looked on both sides of the shadow-puppet screen. I am convinced that a culture is defined by its gentleness with life—the way it protects and nourishes pregnant women, prepares for childbirth, develops rituals surrounding birth (be they spiritual or medical), cares for postpartum women, and nurtures children
and the elderly.
After the Baby’s Birth
Sharing this with the Roots-N-Bush Birth community
Intense High & Divine Birth Wisdom Are Honored to Present the Roots-N-Bush Online Birth Conference. Our mission during this conference is to showcase the rich spirituality, history, and birth customs of Black women all over the world. Currently, we live in a time where there is serious culture appropriation that has spilled over into the natural birth community. The Roots-N-Bush Online Conference presents a platform where we claim our Black birth traditions and customs, from herbs, roots, rituals, and food and share it with a new generation of women hungry to learn, practice and incorporate these customs in their lives and birth work.
We have gathered together a powerfully enriching roster of women whose life/work embody passion for the holistic well-being of Black women, children and families. Each of our guests will be interviewed with thought provoking questions so that they may share their knowledge and pearls of wisdom. After each interview, the listening and viewing audience will have the opportunity to participate in question and answer sessions.
