BIRTHING IN LOVE 🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹@tesoromaspreciado: "ORGULLOSOS DE SER VENEZOLANOS
Fascinada con esta pareja que decidió recrear y vivir su trabajo de parto en un ambiente nacionalista . Apostando y creyendo en nuestro país, orando y confiados en que una nueva Venezuela se está gestando , una Venezuela llena de jóvenes guerreros, amantes y defensores de la libertad, aguerridos, trabajdores, empoderados, llenos de ideales, de sueños, de amor .... una mejor Venezuela está por llegar..
Que mejor nombre para esta hermosura de recién nacida que VICTORIA.
Te recibimos con los brazos abiertos. Bienvenida y que Dios te bendiga"

WE ARE MOTHERS ~ by @themostmona: "We are mothers and we believe that there is nothing which cannot be healed by our love. If only we could love everything into balance- if only we could kiss every ache and wound into ease and comfort. If you've ever been around a circle of balanced women, you know that magic is possible- you know that alchemy is real and you believe in miracles. Motherhood is the hardest thing I've ever done but I understand now why bearing children was gifted to women. It is a blessing to help us uncover our shadow sides, the unloved parts of ourselves. Motherhood is a perfect path to enlightenment because it kicks your ass, covers you in actual sh!t and and forces you to love others humans more than yourself. Love thy neighbor is the male counterpart to that. Local vs global. Feminine vs masculine. Maybe these are unpopular ideas in a gender fluid world but the Divine Feminine reigns supreme for anyone seeking her. Al Rahman in Islam - The Shekhina in Judaism and so on. 💗💗💗" ( thank you @themostmona )

'Humming my way through contractions by @kokobie_love' , I'll never forget this video of @kokobie_love in labor moaning and moving through contractions , and since then her daily self care, her family and her colorful, creative, expressive energy that uplifts daily ...were you vocal in labor? , were the sounds and rhythm different than you thought? What helped you move energy through childbirth ?

SELF LOVE MESSAGE FOR THESE TIMES ~ by the beautiful @moderndaywisewoman .........Many of you may have noticed that your emotions are peaking and that your intuition has been summoning you to face some really hard facts and to explore deep truths that have been neglected for too long. This is all happening for a reason. Now is the time to make choices and draw hard lines in the sand about what we want for our future and what we are really committed to. Xo 💋Renée" ( thank you Renee @moderndaywisewoman ~ connect with this beautiful soul , really someone I wish could be in my daily life as a friend ~ wellness and self awareness is so crucial right now, we all have different triggers , different forms of anxiety or depression or discontent or or self abandonment , @moderndaywisewoman always has that real talk, big heart and wise soul to help you course correct and do right by you .... and then by everyone and everything else )

WHAT DREAMS ARE YOU NURSING? Shared by @themakingsofmama nursing her newborn here ' Here's to birth! The blessing of life, the babies, the dreams, the narratives that we nurse and love, develop and set free! ~ this amazing mama of 3 is writing a book , she will uplift you ~ connect with her ... more wisdom from @themakingsofmama "Because too many of us come into motherhood without community, without ancestral guidance, without our elders, and lean on media cultivated images for what or who we are supposed to be as mothers. Because too many of us believe that our pre motherhood and post motherhood selves don't and can't intersect. Because Instagram caters to this cookie cutter, Martha Stewart version of motherhood, that makes too many of us feel that we are failing and that the sum of all our parts can never add up to a whole mother. Because in this journey many of us forget that a whole mother looks like a WHOLE WOMAN. Because, fuck it, we are all failing at this shit, let's rise in these failures, grow them into lessons, and exchange them with one another. For all of these reasons and many more, I'm honored to be a part of @wildsoulwellness "Wild Mother" series, an interactive, engaged community of flawed and fabulous mothers striving and learning and leaning in on each other.

THE FUTURE IS ~ WHATEVER WE COLLECTIVELY DECIDE IT WILL BE .....let's come together and celebrate the woman in this picture Barbara @tinyandbrave , who has so much integrity, dedication, resilience , heart and dance moves .... as a single mama, woman of color, student midwife she is getting sh*t done on the daily and working so hard there's no time to celebrate ... can we please all come together so she can be celebrated and nominate her for the SINGLE MOTHER SALUTE by @levellemoton !!! Connect with her @tinyandbrave ! Today I honor my sister friend Barbara Verneus @tinyandbrave . B is such an ongoing source of strength, support and inspiration for me. Her strength of character is apparent in every realm she occupies and every endeavor she pursues.

I met Barbara in 2004 at our doula training in Queens, NY. My heart told me right away how amazing she was and what incredible work she was destined to do. We reconnected years later when she moved to Texas - alone with her little daughter, to pursue her calling of midwife (#Sagefemme). When we met again I was taken by the heaviness that B was carrying, to risk everything for her vision and to follow her faith as far as it would take her, for herself and her daughter. Here I saw B's true strength ... because while she herself was struggling, her little girl was thriving. Little G was healthy, smart, happy and radiant, even as her mama was busy planning, worrying, praying, and striving.
Thus I would like to offer up the word that Barbara embodies most - which is ✨ resilient ✨ .
She has survived and risen through experiences that would break others. Her faithfulness is true, her heart compass through storms and gratitude in the sunlight. Whatever strength she inhabits, she doesn't keep for herself, she gives it away.
For those reasons I nominate her for the recognition of being honored at the SINGLE MOTHER SALUTE hosted by @levellemoton, as this event is a reflection of her true spirit, as a single mother and as a friend and role model.( words by @taprootdoula )If you know B or she has given to you as she's giving to me, check out the celebration at @levellemoton and nominate her by email at
