Our Moment Of Truth

The InTune Mother Project Wants Normal, Healthy Childbirth for Women & Families

 

According to research from the American College of Nurse-Midwives (ACNM), many women are not having important conversations with their healthcare providers about how to maintain their health during pregnancy (62%) or about preparing for motherhood (80%). In fact, ACNM’s survey shows a major gap in what women say they want from their healthcare and what women are getting across a spectrum of health needs.

 

To improve the dialogue, The InTune Mother Project is excited to support Our Moment of Truth™: A New Understanding of Midwifery Care. Through this national campaign, ACNM aims to raise the bar for women’s health and re-introduce midwives and midwifery care as important options that should be the norm for women’s health care services in the United States.

 

Midwives are critically important in providing care to women from adolescence to beyond menopause, but their expert knowledge of women’s health is often overlooked. Even though the general public often associates midwives exclusively with maternity care, many women visit a midwife for a range of services before and after pregnancy. This is just one of the many facts that Our Moment of Truth™ aims to share.

 

The InTune Mother Project has already begun to spread the word by: sharing our story; posting information on our social media channels; and taking the Your Health Promise pledge at www.ourmomentoftruth.com. We hope that you too will consider getting involved in this important initiative to inspire women across the country to become active decision makers in their health care.

 

Visit the Our Moment of Truth™ Web site for more information and an overview of survey findings. Or leave a comment to share your moment of truth related to women’s health care and/or midwifery.

Pregnancy and Music ~ Your Baby Has Universal Rhythm

We Are Innately Born With Music…

When you connect to the silence within you, that is when you can make sense of the disturbance going on around you. ~ Stephen Richards

Do you like music? Well I love music. No I mean I really love music… But probably not in the way that you think I mean. Sometimes I even like to listen to silent music. What? Silent music? Yeah I like the way this music makes me think and feel. I can do my best writing to this music because, this music lives within me… Within us all. This is also a great way to understand how to catch the rhythm of the flow. Sometimes this music is  called the sound of the “Om or Universal Hum”. Listening to this music can give you great strength, determination, and even simple clarity on how to make your next best move. This type of music is easy, accessible, and FREE… And everybody likes FREE stuff right? Hey I love it so much… that I might just go crazy and start a T-Shirt Printing company dedicated to the “Silent Music” movement… 😉

Well here is a silent meditation that I created just for you. It was custom made just for mother and baby.

***Take your time to read the words first without speaking. Then after reading through the meditation 2-3 times to yourself, begin to speak the words aloud. Become bold with each new breath. Speak the words until you feel yourself drift off into the radiant vibration of Woman. You will go through transition. This is good. You will come out harmonically sound and vibrating on a higher frequency. Repeat this exercise 3 times a week for optimum results.***

I Remember Her Meditation

When I listen to music or sing it makes me think of being a woman.

It makes me feel of expansive rhythm of my hips.

Remembering my childhood.

No matter how abstract it was.

No frequency was too high or out of balance.

There are no things that can bare shame here nor there.

I now think about my mother.

She gave me Motherhood.

How dynamic a job it is.

To serve little abstract children.

No one the same.

Asking for it’s own birthright.

Similarities yes!

Yet each one is crafted to it’s own.

I sing a Universal vibration in this generation.

I sing the vibration of childbirth.

It tells my story  well.

It heals my fears because I too have been born.

It tells the same abstract story that makes every women powerful.

We gave birth to the whole civilization of humankind.

Without the essence of the feminine principle ~  no-thing would exist.

When I breathe deep I remember the sound of my first breath.

Singing loudly because I’m my own Creator.

I AM A Woman.

I AM a partner.

We give birth in the transition of degrees.

I will Not birth in pain.

I AM Not dancing alone.

God does not cause woman such tribulation.

Women give birth in power.

It has always been this way.

Weakness is not the vibration I feel.

I AM fit for the journey.

From the beginning there was none like me.

I AM the Eve.

I AM the great expanse of the night.

I Am the Mother of the atom.

Adam (Atom) and his star-seed.

I remember them well.

I AM everything to them.

I AM valued.

I AM legend.

I AM present.

When I listen to music or sing it makes me think of being with them.

It makes me feel who I AM.

 Then as I return to her.

The woman I remember…

I remember The Mother I have always been.

Exhaling.

I became silent again.

My heart is a sounding drum.

I stop to take a listen.

The pounding is ever-clear.

My direction is calling me home.

And I can hear freedom.

The drumming of motherhood.

The journey was long.

And I have given birth to a new sound.

My silent song.

We are just a team of afro-hippie, social entrepreneurs, with a wholesome grassroots concept to resolve and reduce the marginalization of maternal and infant mortality in women of color, specifically African American women. In passion and humility I speak to you from these pages, taking slow, deep, breaths.

Get Prepared To Give Birth

Get InTuned To Healthy Childbirths

Homebirth 2007

The InTune Mother Project was founded by a husband and wife team, of home birthing artists, poets, parents, students, philanthropists, activists, advocates, and natural childbirth enthusiasts. Yes, we wear a lot of hat, but our goal is to empower moms and families about holistic prenatal care, the importance of home-birth preparation, InTune childbirths, exclusive breastfeeding, and how to apply for vital records for out of institution childbirths. Our goal is to help moderate to low-income families achieve a happy birthday for their new baby girl or boy.

It was like yesterday that my hubby and I were in our beautifully decorated home birthing sanctuary, about to receive our now 6-year old son RaMel into this world. Who knew at that time we would be hear assisting other moms and families with preparing for their own births. When asked what our role is, we prefer to be called childbirth companions or childbirth advocates. We are here for midwives and doulas. We are here for the mother, father, baby, and family as  accountability partners and consultants to what makes sure for a solid, happy, and communal relationship between all parties.

This partnership will allow mothers and birth workers to identify, with how they will serve each other, in the event of childbirth. This is so important to us because, with our second son Logan age – 4, we experienced a conflicting schedule, with our midwife. This was not favorable at the time, but we overcame all doubt, to complete a safe and secure unplanned unassisted birth.  Thankfully, we were well informed and confident enough that we were able to proceed with our birth and have yet another positive outcome.

Hey… We know all too well the complete spectrum around childbirth. From starting out with the traditional medical model thrown in our faces.  To becoming seekers of the truth, thus becoming informed, and thus giving birth to the empowerment that taught us how to keep the sacredness of our birth rights intact for future references. Now approaching our 3rd sons 1st year, we are proud to celebrate our 366th day with him and all of you. Our goal is to help facilitate for other families the needed tools to go deeper into themselves by awakening or supporting the power that also lives to thrive within them.

And this is how we passionately assist mothers and families to celebrate an informed, safe, happy and empowered birthday.
