Because honey, what we aren't going to do is:
- Be afraid to birth your babee
- Rush your babee and the process of labor
- Accept that a healthy mom and babee is enough for you
- Not use your voice to advocate for informed consent
- Interrupt the oxytocin inducing Golden Hours
- Think only your provider knows whats best for you and your body
- Rush your babee to latch immediately after birth
It's not a coincidence you're here, it was meant to
And this is where I come in....to educate you on how natural birth occurs and how to manage each stage of labor to labor at home longer to achieve a positive birth. Even if you're delivering at the hospital, waiting it out in the hospital isn't ideal nor will it increase your chances of a non medicated or vaginal birth. Inductions can be a positive experience too, honey using my fearless Mind, Body & Babee model of care.
Honey and honey's to be. That's how I see all birthing persons.. a spoonful of honey.
You see, birth, babees, breastfeeding and connections are my jam and I am in awe of the human childbirthing process.
I started with a love I call heyHONEY and I’ve been doing this breast friend work for 5 years. My mission is inspired by the lack of support during my own birthing journey and aims to drastically increase the generational health of Black and Brown communities through education and support surrounding birth and how it affects breastfeeding and through postpartum experience. My community work has awarded me national recognition as the 2020 Cultural Changemaker Award with the United States Breastfeeding Committee. I am currently a ROSE Community Transformer, Certified Community Health Worker and Maternal Helath Consultant specializing in Maternal Child Health.
I like to think of myself as your honeybabee's AuntBee and a sister friend welcoming me into your homes and the lives of your new family. I'd love to serve you with a positive birth to breastfeeding experience. .
