Welcome to The Melanated Mommy Tribe Empowerment Series

With all the negative statistics and news swirling around about the adverse birth outcomes and the disparities faced by Black women and families during pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period this series was created to empower and liberate Black women and families reminding them about the beauty of birth, our autonomy and rights when it comes to our bodies and birth. Part of the woman's creation was to bring life into the world and we should be able to do so free of fear. 

This series will equip you with the right tools and mindset to leave you feeling prepared, empowered and excited about the journey to motherhood (parenthood).

This course addresses the unique experiences, challenges, and disparities faced by Black women in maternal healthcare, with a focus on equipping them with the knowledge and tools to advocate for their own needs and preferences during pregnancy, labor, and delivery.

By the end of the course, Black mothers will emerge with increased confidence, knowledge, and agency as they approach childbirth. They will be equipped with the tools and resources to navigate the healthcare system, advocate for their own needs, and create a positive and empowering birthing experience that honors their individuality and cultural identity.
