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. 


Kisses melt my spine into vanilla rivers.

I lay on this bliss sailing.

I want the air he holds in the bend of his lips,

the tears in his hands, the landscape of his man.

He wonders through the cobwebs of my heart.

Stumbles on sticky silence.

Tongues massage words we haven’t said.

I want to be stranded on his island and live off his muscle.

Hide with the spiders just so he can find me.

His lap would fish for me. Smolder flames for his taste buds.

Deserted/ with no eyes to answer to.
