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.

Moments like these

I wear you in remembering. A butterfly colored kiss. Its wingspan on my chest.The curtains knotted. The mouth of the window wanting. The frame of the door opened. The draft through the rail of bones. I find solace in the wind. The miles it carries. The touchscreen of its face. Its light body, bubbling on my nipples. What is this body without the sweep of your fingers? What am I without the ocean’s breath? What do I become when I am emptied of you? The eye of time, its tiny blinks... Is it the same wherever you are, changing?

I lay under the faucet of the tub, open my legs to its thunder. I call to your features. Soak in its water. This is how I remember you, Love. Through the silence of the wind, the rumble in my belly, telling me call him; you are hungry for his blood.
