Sooo~ This fucking guy..... “The father of obstetrics “ J.Marion Sims performed obstetric/gynecological procedures/experiments with no anesthesia ~unmedicated~on black slave women. He tortured them. This is not new information. But rarely do you hear about it! I spent some time chatting yesterday w my friend @foodieheartflutters discussing the overwhelming statistics regarding #womenofcolor and birth. Women of color are 4-10 times more likely to die during birth or postpartum. Infants of color are 3–4 times more likely to die during birth or postpartum. The statistics did not show it was due to lack of access for healthcare or economics. Some would say this is from epigenetic inheritance. I personally agree that healthcare, economics are also factors of epigenetic inheritance. After my conversation with my friend I knew this morning I would be posting regarding this~ ironically last night skimming through IG I was happily surprised to find on my friend @samhugg page the update that Dr.Sims statue in Central Park will be taken down. There are so many layers to this. Brass tacks ~ we need to look at our past~ deeply. Our #blackwomen are still being over looked. It infuriates me that this will be news to most of you. I don’t have the answers but I am working locally to make a change. Look at these photos ~ really look at them. Yeah this shit really went down. This white supremacy is still affecting our #sistersofcolor #blackwomenmatter #blackbabiesmatter #womenofcolor #tearthatshitdown @ Ha Yoga and Life Studio
