A Black Carpet Community Brunch 

 

 

Mimosas 4 Moms

So we are only focused on mastering…

The Power of NOW!

We are a 100% parent led organization. Our primary goal is to find ways to keep other parents fully aware of all of their options pertaining to conception and childbirth. So we charged families to Birth Like A BOSS and began to strategize how they experienced childbirth. This is our why…

The BOSS Method Remix

As a Mother and Independent Perinatal Birth Consultant, I don’t expect change, I evoke change, with Father in mind, this power becomes we. This power becomes community.

Over the last few years, we became aware that not many childbirth organizations are led by minority women. So we found it necessary for us to “observe” this fact, and look for ways to employ some diversity, to the community of birth work. With the right setting and time, we can openly discuss how together we can heal the most traumatic racial disparities that affects the ecological footprint of the human family. When we appropriate our attention to the bigger problems then we find solutions. In the word “Sankofa” we must always remember to “reach back and get it.” This is our missing link to our success. In short, as modern day humans, I think we value technology too much, over our own intuition.

This discussion is not about race relations, as much as it is about the current human ecological crisis in the Black population. It is clear evidence when one group or population of people, are considered endangered by another group or population…

We have to challenge the consciousness of such science.

It looks like a league of unfamiliar saviors who speaks to the current issues, with an unfamiliar tongue, therefore confusing the proper dialog, with more disparity in our vulnerable communities.

We are not surviving because, we are disconnected from the NOW.

We are not surviving because we are not conscious of WHAT IS IMPORTANT RIGHT NOW?

What is most important, is that we direct our attention away from the frustration and anxiety, of what our community does not have, and who is not offering this or that. What are you doing to support the community. We have to become real. Time to get open and free your mind to find deliberate solutions. Easier said than done right… Well, within our consciousness, to get to the solutions and antidotes that our ancestors are speaking to us,  we have to begin with birth work. One woman, one baby, one family at a time.

Building On The Legacy of Sankofa

According To: HEALTHY START INITIATIVE

An Average Week In Oklahoma:

• 957 babies are born
• 150 babies are born to teen mothers (ages 15-19)
• 129 babies are born to mothers who receive inadequate prenatal care
• 71 babies are born low birth weight
• 112 babies are born preterm
• 8 babies die before their first birthday

Oklahoma ranks 6th in the United States on infant mortality.

The infant mortality rates for African Americans in our service area for every 1,000 live births, 13.6% of infants die.

The Time Is NOW! Be  An Ambassador.

Saturday May 7th will be our 1st Annual Black Carpet Community Brunch: Mimosas 4 Moms

By attending our Mimosas 4 Moms event, you will be helping our organization recognize the need of African American women in the field of birth work. In the state of Oklahoma the infant mortality rate has decreased over the last year, but the numbers are still staggering among the African American population. This event is geared to help the community understand how important it is that mothers have support from their 1st thru their 4th trimester.

Oklahoma has one of the highest rates in infant death in the U.S.

Every year about 100 families will tragically experience death of their new baby.

Black and Native American babies are 2 to 3 times more likely to die more than other populations.

We believe by adding more community based educators, that are trained with clear evidence based knowledge, and equipped with strategically designed tools for success, we can help reduce the numbers of mother and infant deaths in the state of Oklahoma for ALL women, with a strong focus on the disparities within the African American communities.

This event is two-fold

•One to celebrate recent graduates our 1st Community Certified Doula Training via our partnering organization Sista Midwife Productions. Class is scheduled for April 22, 23, 24, 29, 30, and May 1.  This event is to also reveal 20 Scholarship Awards for our 2nd training, June 13-17 via the “Accessible Doula Program” through The Matrona. This part of the Mimosas 4 Moms event that will be held in high esteem, the Saturday before Mother’s Day, May 7, 2016. (A limited number of seats are still available for both trainings.) Visit here to register: The Oklahoma Challenge.

•Two to recognize community partnerships and strengthen our network for our 4th annual #GivingTuesday campaign “I Support OKC Birth Workers of Color” scholarship campaign to continue to provide high impact perinatal education to women interested in the respective field of birt work.

So won’t you join us over brunch to see how you, your business, or organization can help us mobilize the need for RADICAL CHANGE in the state of Oklahoma.

Youth Culture Keepers Camp 2017

Two Sets of Notes–

What happens when a child is given the wrong information about who they are… The generation parishes…

In our upcoming Youth Culture Keepers Camp, we are taking our participants on a fun and interactive journey through culturally centered literature, art, and community.

What are you waiting on to plant your seed in our upcoming 5 Day Culture Keepers Camp? 
What will your seed experience:
***Yoga and Meditation to bring focus, discipline, and clarity
***The Oral Tradition of Storytelling  to bring culture and eldership
***The Benefits of Communal Literacy to show the power of community through language and dialogue. 
And much much more…. 
One gift that can save any child’s life is the gift of reading… Particularly Black children. In addition, not only will reading save their lives, what they read will directly impact how they integrate themselves into society. If a child only reads stories that does not foster positive images of themselves, the child becomes uninterested in the foundational points of learning…. Which begins with learning how to read. 
Not learning how to read includes an emphasis on the negative school experiences of Black students, as well as statistics on the academic performance of the Black student population. Strategic tools to help educators and parents address the unique needs of Black students and ways of engaging parents to support the academic progress of their children are included in our 5 Day Youth Culture Keeper’s Camp. 
Underachievement is one of the most potent weapons that many Black students use to express their displeasure with the public school system. Let us help your student get a head start this school year….

Expanding Our Scope of CARE

CBD – Green Pain Relief

Dear TIM Community,

In the world of pain management we have new options. Well, the options are old, but now we have a new found connection to their benefits. There is a revolution occurring in the drug therapy world. The lowly hemp plant – so famous for strong rope in the days before nylon and Dacron – is surfacing as nature’s very potent anti-inflammatory. This is promising news for many of those suffering from diseases with inflammation as their root cause. Control the inflammation and the symptoms, as well as the suffering, go away.

Enter Pure-Cannaceutical Hemp Oil Products, a legal dietary supplement by Can-Tek Lab’s in Oklahoma City. Pure-Cannaceutical products are Pharmaceutical Grade Dietary Supplements containing hemp oil derived from the whole medicinal hemp plant, which delivers healthful benefits, without the psychoactive or “high” effect associated with this type of botanical. There is ZERO THC in Pure-Cannaceutical products so urine drug test screens are negative and this product is safe for those with THC allergies. This makes it an appealing option for patients looking for relief from inflammation, pain, anxiety, psychosis, seizures, spasms, and other conditions without disconcerting feelings of lethargy or dysphoria some experience from High THC Cannabis.

Pure-Cannaceutical Hemp Oil Tinctures contain at least 65% CBD – the highest natural amount of CBD of any supplier in the world. The Hemp Oil Oral Tinctures are light, oily liquids that are to be delivered orally by dropper and come in a variety of strengths. The CBD Oral Spray is for intermittent use when feeling particularly stressed or anxious throughout the day. The Hemp Balm and Hemp Salve are both for topical use. The Hemp Balm is applied to painful areas and the Hemp Salve is perfect for rashes or wounds like shingles or psoriasis. There are over 30 examples of health conditions we found that show benefit from CBD use including ADHD, arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism, MS, Chronic Pain, PTSD, depression, osteoporosis, epilepsy, and more.

Can Community Centered Health Care Save Black Women From Loosing Out Under the GOP Health Plan

In this article we will see how detrimental the GOP Health Plan is to Black Women’s Health. We believe that it will cause more disparities for the Black population than many are prepared for. Our plan for Community Centered Health Care can be an easy solution. 

After accounting for amendments to the American Health Care Act (AHCA) currently being considered by the U.S. House of Representatives, the latest estimate from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) found that the GOP’s plan still would increase the number of uninsured people in the country to 24 million by 2026.

Even before CBO released its initial report, health policy experts and pundits across the board were warning that more people will be left without insurance than ever before under the GOP’s health bill.

“To be okay with 24 million people not having access to the care they need amounts to nothing more than a blatant disregard for the lives of Americans,” said the Black Women’s Health Imperative, a D.C.-based advocacy organization, in a recent email. “By moving forward with this repeal legislation, Congress is sending a message to the American people that their health is secondary to savings in the federal budget.”
