SANKOFA Birth Ambassadors
Sankofa Birth Ambassador (SBA) Workshops prepare participants to support women throughout the childbearing year, equipping Sankofa Birth Ambassadors to function as birth and postpartum support, advocate within their communities, and/or provide assistance to family and friends. These workshops emphasize connectedness to African cultures and the Black American historical context, while also navigating the challenges of modern birth culture.
BEFORE THERE WERE DOULAS... there were mothers, grandmothers, aunts, sisters and friends who supported the mothers in their lives during the their childbearing years. Before we received assistance from others, we did what we needed to do to HELP OURSELVES, to HEAL OURSELVES and to SAVE OURSELVES. But so much has changed and so many of our ways have been abandoned. In times past, when our mothers saw that their daughters were in danger they sought to EDUCATE THEM, EQUIP THEM and PREPARE THEM for the challenges they might face. Women of African descent have become more vulnerable during childbirth than ever before. WE ARE BEING CALLED to care for our daughters, nieces and sisters once again. Let's restore relationships that can promote intergenerational healing.
