GREAT PREPARATIONS WAS CREATED IN RESPONSE TO RISING MATERNAL MORTALITY RATES IN THE UNITED STATES, WHICH ARE HIGHEST AMONGST BIPOC WOMEN BIRTHING WITHIN THE HEALTHCARE SYSTEM

 

In the USA, Black women and Native American women are 4 to 5 times more likely to die from childbirth related causes than white women. Many of these causes can be avoided or their impact lessened with proper education about and implementation of preventative measures.

By providing education around the history of birthing across cultures, the evolution of modern medicine, holistic alternatives and by empowering your body’s natural processes, women can confidently express their own experiences to effectively advocate for themselves while establishing healthy boundaries

GREAT PREPARATIONS EQUIPS WOMEN WITH THE PHYSICAL & MENTAL CONDITIONING REQUIRED FOR  PREGNANCY, BIRTHING, AND PARENTHOOD

 

Pranayama is a Sanskrit word meaning "breath expansion." This practice, combined with mindful movements:

  • builds endurance to breathe through labor
  • cultivates mobility to safely transition through a range of birthing positions and
  • strengthens muscles to efficiently push your baby through the Earthside threshold. 

Your 6-month access provides unlimited replays of our prenatal yoga and breath work classes, guided by our certified prenatal yoga guide.

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.

 

PARTNER PRESSURE

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.
