A Womb Journey With My Mother pt. 1

Divine Blessings Community!

So lately I’ve been having issues with my irregular cycle and complications with my doctor. The same old, same old; they don’t believe anything I say unless its backed by their tests and there’s that extra layer of the medical history of United States being rooted in the pain and sacrifice of brown and black bodies we can add to every interaction as well. But where does my womb’s history began? How did Grace Jones (my great grandmother) get familiar with her womb? I know my pain is not just my own, but something that was passed onto me from my ancestors. Those are some deep thoughts and with many of my families elders passing away, the work to discovering my womb’s roots start with me.
