A Black BirthingDream Come True

Birth Queen

A Big Black Birth Dream Come True!

Birth Queen has been nurtured into existence after years gestating in my mind, heart, body, and spirit. Today, I bring all that beautiful and bountiful energy to life here at birthqueen.org.

I am making dreams come true, not just for myself, but for Black Mothers. The fact that I received official non-profit status on WOMENS DAY is God telling me I’m on the correct path. He is guiding me and I am following. For as long as I can remember I dreamed of becoming a mother. I was surrounded by strong Black Queens who birthed beautiful intelligent healthy babies and it was my belief I would do the same.

Fast forward to 2021 and I am thrilled to share that I am a mother to two health black sons. I chose to birth in a hospital setting with the support of a midwife, doula, my mother, and my supportive husband. I was educated, supported and empowered.

I believe that by training and placing more black birth workers in the field as well as educating, supporting, and empowering Black birthing people lives will be saved.
Today Black women in this country are fearing for their lives when they prepare to birth their babies. There is a Black maternal health crisis. Black women are dying at 3-4 times the rate of White women. I have decided to try my best to find a solution to this heartbreaking and unacceptable racist problem. I believe that by training and placing more black birth workers in the field as well as educating, supporting, and empowering Black birthing people lives will be saved.

BIRTH QUEEN is my newest baby. I have formed a 501c3 to raise funds to save Black mothers. I need your support. I will be raising money to donate to organizations doing the work to care for Black mothers. I have the privilege of being educated and having relationships with people of influence and power. I believe God has called me to call upon those relationships to save the lives of my sisters. Every woman has the right to a beautiful and empowered birth. Black women, it is my commitment to make sure each one of you have the birth of your dreams. I want you to, “BIRTH, QUEEN” more to come!
