Event description
Expecting Possibility is a documentary about Black Mothers, Birth workers and the possibilities for natural birth and maternal wellness.

About this Event

Expecting Possibility is the powerful story of one family who took an intentional and unconventional journey in bringing their Black baby into the world.

Black folk in America live in threatening conditions--especially a Black woman and her unborn baby. For many families, bringing life into this world comes at a significant cost--money and possibly life. Survival in this environment requires self-determination; deciding how a Black child comes into this world and who gets to participate in this event.

Expecting Possibility is produced by Chosen Stones TV in conjunction with Sistah of the Yam LLC. Chosen Stones TV is a startup media company that creates content to capture the magnificence of God within African-American experiences. Sistah of the Yam is a Germantown based organization founded by Taylor Johnson Gordon whose mission is to help Black women and girls heal and grow resiliency through real, affordable food.
