The earth, and every living thing that inhabits it, operates within the powerful force of gravity. Gravity is a grounding energy that supports the movement, balance and flow of our bodies. Gravity has always been there and will always be there. It held us close as we were suspended in the center of our mothers’ wombs and it ushered us through the sacred gateway on the day that we were born. The gravity of the maternal health crisis in the United States is especially heavy for Black Indigenous People of Color (BIPOC). The reproductive healthcare system has failed BIPOC birthing folx by abandoning holistic and indigenous birthing practices, by failing to fully integrate midwifery and doula care and by choosing high tech and low touch practices, policies and procedures that strip away the power of the human experience.

GRAVITY - an invisible force that attracts a body or any object having mass toward the center of the earth; it is also describes something that is of extreme importance. “When we are birthing WITH Gravity, we are fully covered, aligned and grounded in our power”. - Shawnee Benton Gibson
