Here’s to believing in yourself & reaching your goals! You are so deserving of your wildest dreams. #icoachwomen #motivationmonday

Happy birthday, Dr. Itengre! Here he is pictured with two board members and two of our other on-the-ground leaders at our Board Meeting in May! Thanks for all you do!

If you could look at yourself and have a conversation with you from a completely different body and set of eyes and lips, what would you say to her/him? What would she/he look like to you? *

Why do we find it hard sometimes to be kind to ourselves and compliment the person we see in the mirror? Why does is take someone else to say it or believe we are worthy, special, individual, unique, intelligent or beautiful. Why does it take 5k followers or 30k to now determine you are worthy? Why should it be the compliments/shout out of a boss or line manager or influencer to tell you, you are amazing or talented or good at your job? *

It is fricking hard but YOU determine it! YOU alone.... #beautifulmind #mindset #beautiful #mentalhealth #talented #loveforthemama #faithinyourself #influencer #believeinyourworth #mother #mama #sisterhood #smallbusiness #mama #mother #youalone #thirdtrimester #maternalhealth

You can help us restore their dignity!

Running my mouth and Instagram rants are only so satisfying. ✊🏽🧘🏽‍♀️🤱🏽

So much love and respect for these two ladies, each involved in heading an organisation for #womensempowerment , my favourite sort! Karen is involved with the #B!rth project that campaigns for better awareness and improvement in #maternalhealth around the globe, in particular the developing world. This is a cause really close to my heart and me and Karen initially met when I was asked to give a speech on this topic earlier this year, after which she asked me to become their ambassador 🤗 so I'm super excited to get involved at the coal face of this and come out to Africa!!! ❤️ And Emily heads the #irise organisation that campaigns to end #menstrualpoverty around the world and gave a brilliant talk on how #menstruation still carries so much stigma even in our developed world. Every time I hear the stories and see the figures, I'm in disbelief over how women continue to suffer from this no matter where they live, and I can't wait to start campaigning to help to end this #culturaltaboo
👊

So proud of these ladies, and @thecirclengo for organising another brilliant event to help get so many wonderful passionate women in one room who all want to #changetheworldtogether 💞

I see 3 kids go into the grocery store with their mom.
The kids are all complaining and whining about going grocery shopping.

Behind her I walk into the store alone, as I haven’t picked my daughter up yet.
As we go down the isles at the same time, I see her kids crying, complaining, whining.
They want Captain Crunch, and after a few minutes of a tantrum, she puts it in the cart.

They want sour keys, and instead of an argument, this time she just lets them put it in the cart right away.
I jump to a judgement, she is reinforcing their behaviour, why would she give in so easy?

I finish my childless grocery trip with ease and make it back to the checkout.

I am behind this mom and kids in line.
The kids, still misbehaving, complaining, whining.

Me, still silently judging and comparing.

Finally I look at the mom. She looks worn out and exhausted.

I look at the mom and see that though her kids are well dressed and put together, her hair is messy and her clothes look old and worn.

I start to see the grace that she is using with her kids, how she is keeping her cool even amidst the complaining.

I see that she has 2 kids pulling on her and one kid crying and I wonder if I would be that calm in that situation.
I realize that she has no help, she is here alone with three kids and I don’t even want to go grocery shopping with one.
Quickly, I realize how judgemental I have been.
What puts me in any place to judge another mom. I don’t know her story, I don’t know what her day has been like or even what her year has been like.
I end up offering a quick smile to her as she loads her cart and leaves the store.

Although our interaction was small, it has stuck with me.

Since this time, when I catch myself making a silent judgement, I try to stop it in it’s tracks.
Instead of judging I am trying to look at the situation from a different perspective.
Understanding that we all have a unique story, and when we see one glimpse of someones day that is all we are seeing.

I share this story because this village and this page is built around non-judgemental support.
Share in the comments how you choose to be intentionally non-judgemental to others in your life!!

Words cannot explain how proud I am to be part of such an powerful movement.🤰🏽

Mama Glow- DOULA IMMERSION LEVEL 1 AUG 2018. Look at this beautiful group of women!!! I feel honored that this summer I got to witness 3 cohorts of doula trainees come through the space and grow. I really can’t wait for all of the doula groups to meet!
_
This was a soulful weekend, supercharged and deeply spiritual. There were a lot of tears, powerful ancestral healing, remembrance, and affirmation. The next wave of birth workers is becoming... yes to the future! I’m so proud of everyone for answering the call. Your foremothers are proud of you.
_
This is the last immersion of the summer. Stay tuned for the fall! October is full, we just opened November Level 1 Immersion. We will be focused on our Level 2 Immersion to continue our doula trainees on the path to full certification.
_
Stay tuned for our “MEET THE DOULA” series on @mamaglow which is starting back up soon, where you’ll meet our July and August doula trainees. If you haven’t already peeped it- go on @mamaglow and scroll back to see the doulas from June.

Each year, about 950,000 women suffer from post-partum depression. And that only covers reported cases. || Don’t be afraid to ask for help!

Reading this article brought tears to my eyes, and right on the heels of such a beautiful doula orientation this past weekend. I cried because it confirmed the suspicions, the conversations had with other birth workers, and the hard pill reality that ain’t nobody checking for ... like LITERALLY checking for black women except for black women!!! You can be B E Y O N C E y’all ... and even still ... 😢 This article came out a week ago!!! .
.
Do people even recognize that an attack on the wombs of black women is an attack on black people and all of fucking civilization?!? If not, it’s time to wake up folks ... happening in the most industrialized country in the world ... humph ... 😒 ... smmfh ... @loventouch @sistersong_woc #notonmywatch #trustblackwomen #sistersong #blackmamasmatter #loventouch #beyonce #serenawilliams #erykahbadu #maternalhealth #maternalhealth #mysisterskeeper

Globally, the maternal mortality ratio fell by approximately 44% over the past 25 years. Projections suggest that the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goal maternal mortality target would result in 1·4 million fewer deaths cumulatively from 2016 to 2030. We’re working to make sure every women and every newborn has clean, safe care at birth.

Heroes don’t always wear capes but they wear bad a$$ belts.

The drive to the hospital or birthing center should be a moment of excitement and anticipation for parents, and should end with a safe arrival. There are endless stories of having bags packed in advance, putting together playlists, and getting ticketed for parking in the wrong spot.
This story, however, has a different ending. It is unacceptable to treat families this way, especially those who are in need of medical attention. [link in our bio] -
