What Clients Are Saying:
Normalize Birthing With Support:
ANCIENT WISDOM LOST
"It takes a village" is a phrase rooted in the tribal nature of our indigenous and ancestral culture for child bearing and the introduction of a woman into motherhood. The women of the tribe would bestow mom-to-be with ancient wisdom passed down in stories and recipes. Much of these traditions, much of OUR story was wiped from recollection when our ancestors were enslaved. Great Preparations offers an opportunity to reconnect and remember who we are.
TRIBE OUT OF REACH
Although the planes, trains & automobiles of modern society have allowed us to explore the world, many of us are physically further away from our tribe, our elders, mothers, sisters - our support system. Great Preparations aims to foster communal support by sharing resources and hosting guest expert Q&As.
Most male birthing partners have not received pregnancy planning education, but are expected to serve as the primary support person of their pregnant partner. Great Preparations minimizes the learning curve for male birthing partners, which affords them the opportunity to be fully present throughout the process.
WEST IS "BEST"
The societal structures in the United States were not built with the BIPOC birthing person in mind. We have been and continue to be under represented, which leads to delays in treatment, misdiagnosis and inaccurate summations of our health standards. Great Preparations intentionally educates its clients on the skewed history of Western medicine; specifically, Obstetrics and Gynecology, who's teachings still prove problematic in today's healthcare system.Get Access
