BLKBRY® has the first freestanding doula center with a community milk bank in Washington State founded and led by a Black person of enslaved Africans from the US descent. It was difficult for me at first to claim this, but I'm claiming it!!
I honestly found difficulty wording that I had accomplished this because for one, how can we will still be having "firsts" in this day and age?! Also, in an amazing conversation about how many of our ancestors, grandmas, aunties, and cousins were opening their homes as "unofficial" free-standing centers for Black folks to receive holistic care. I'm proud to be among the folks that have opened up spaces... safe spaces for Black folks to seek support.
BLKBRY takes a human-centered design approach by centering the experiences and needs of Black folks and families in reproductive, perinatal, lactation, and infant and toddler care. And the new physical space is designed around those experiences and needs as well.
BLKBRY® is Blackity Black Black!
I acknowledge that Black refers to people of African descent across the diaspora (Black, Descendants of Enslaved Africans, African-American, Afro-Latinx, Afro-Caribbean, Black and Indigenous, and African Immigrant), and BLKBRY is here for all BLACK folks!
