Re-Branding and Re-Dedicating the Olive Parent to African Holistic Health
Let me clear, I will first and foremost be “Black”. My blackness made this site what it was and will continue to do so - in essence it is who I am. My desire to home birth was sparked by this very issue…racism in the healthcare system. I never spoke of it publicly until now as a form of self-protection from the gaslighting the African American community typically receives when it speaks of the injustices it experiences. Last year, everything was exposed. Including the vast number of Black moms and babies that die in the American health care system. A topic I have been trying to highlight for 14 years.
