Babymamahood is a mother and daughter led project, founded on the ancestral science of our abuelitas y elders. It is a living space where we share how we thrive in Babylon (the hood) . We honor all the elemental forces that have allowed us to learn this very simple healing practice and we thank all our ancestors and relations who continue to bless and support this work. Our goal is to inspire and to help sustain the lives of mamas and babies everywhere.

Based in Oakland, CA.

Zion and Juju create potions to love on sadness and recovery. 

Lunar Love

I’ve always wanted to be the moon that eclipses the sun,

the eyelid that winks and collapses the earth into darkness.

 I’ve wanted for us to fall too, like an unrolling curtain,

like how the night falls slowing when the sun bends

onto the horizon like a pew, and we look towards the moon

like an altar. 

I’ve wanted for you to praise me as we lie blanketed,

talking in tongues, living and dying and living religiously

like dawn, like dusk, like dawn.  But, somehow

the air knows how to intercept us, it knows how to pull us

apart, until we align for a moment,

for a lunar eclipse.
