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.

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

Sepia, an Ekphrasis

her hue is the color of conquest

her body knows about lying on beds like tables, bellies pouring all around her

her makeup's, a barricade she encircles black lines colors her lips soil adorns her neck with plastic men have offered her

her shoulder blades an equator no man can come above. she won’t even kiss them for her lips are too close to her mind

ask her her name & she will tell you with a stare that can rip a sky’s gut

open with thunder

my name is Reign
