Event description

Description

Melanated Birth and Yoga is a day of healing and gratefulness. A day of recharging and cultivating tools that Black women can utilize daily to practice self-care, love, forgiveness, and mindfulness.

Health disparities concerning Black women are disturbing. As more and more medical health institutions move to more affluent areas and further away from urban areas, Black women in Memphis who seek medical services are coming into care at a later time. Black women are gaining prenatal care later in pregnancy which increases many risks of pregnancy complications. Black women have few options in giving birth and are at a higher risk of experiencing discrimination during birth. Nationally, Black women have higher cesarean rates compared to white women. Nationally, Black women are 4 times more likely to die during childbirth compared to white women.

And despite those facts, Black women thrive.

The Melanated Birth and Yoga one-day event seeks to merge birth and holistic health together. A day where Black women become more informed about ways to empower themselves with knowledge about all things birth but to also immerse themselves in the healing practices of yoga.
