In addition, we feel passionately about bringing some awareness to what we call "Baby Moon Time." In many indigenous and tribal cultures around the world this time continues to be held as sacred. The 6 weeks or 40 days following the birth of a child is an essential time for healing and bonding to occur. The family is honored with blessings, gifts, acts of service and nourishing food. The community is welcomed to share the responsibilities of the household. This allows the new mother to focus her energy on nourishing the baby and replenishing her body after the work of growing, carrying and birthing the new member of the tribe. The new father is encouraged to spend as much skin to skin time as possible with the mother and baby, a crucial element in the growth and brain development of human beings and animals alike.
After having the privilege of providing postpartum care to families we are currently reaching out for support from our tribe. We are already thankful to be receiving food through Meal train, acts of service, material items through the Amazon baby registry, prayers and words of affirmation and we also understand that people show love and support in different ways. It would be wonderful if we could meet or exceed our goal! This would give Brian the freedom to stay home longer without the pressure of providing and going back to work right away. If you are not comfortable with this format, please feel free to contact us and we will find another way.
We are working toward Sacred Economics, By Charles Eisenstein and planting the seeds of a gift economy. We are practicing the cycle of giving and receiving and asking for what we need gives others the opportunity to give from the heart and be more open to receiving.
We want to thank you in advance for joining us as we reclaim this tribal tradition! The way we birth and raise our children matters and we are changing the world for the next seven generations and beyond!
Wellness and blessings,
Ananda, Brian, Willow and Zoe
