I was accepted to Luna Tierra Birth Center, a birth center in El Paso, Texas serving birthing people on both sides of the border!
I am super excited and nervous. Diving into birthwork as a student midwife has many challenges. A lot of those challenges could be fixed with community support and money.
In choosing a place to study midwifery, I felt compelled to work with birth people at the border through Luna Tierra. Luna Tierra is a WOC led birth center. This felt especially important to me. AND with the current adminstration being a total loss when it comes to humanitarian rights for all people, I feel especially call to work there. As a Spanish speaking person and as a Black person, my goal is to learn, to grow, and to serve black and brown people as a midwife.
This work feels especially important and so does motherhood. So, I am happy to say that the center is willing to work with me and Zion as we dive more deeply and intently to the sacred ceremony of pregnancy, labor, birth, and the postpartum period.
It is crucial that we support black and brown student midwives, so that we can collectively heal black and brown birth on Earth. To me, the is one of the foundations of liberation for black and brown people.' Funds will be used directly for education, housing, and travel expenses.
I’ve already raised $2000 in two weeks and I have about ten more days to raise $3000. Please help by liking, commenting, and sharing this post. Link is in the picture & bio.
