There are several different types of community-based models of care as it relates to supporting women and families in childbirth.
At Beehive Birth Consulting we provide Ecological Childbirth Support services for those seeking an autonomous and independent birth experience in the comfort of their own home, while protecting your privacy and well-being in the postpartum period.
Our ecological approach to childbirth is intuitive, self-directed, and primal. We pride ourselves in the natural and instinctual way of providing support to childbearing families. At Beehive Birth Consulting our undisturbed way of supporting birthing families is not for everyone. We believe that while giving birth at home provides the birthing woman, and her chosen community the opportunity to explore the autonomous power of pregnancy care, birth, labor, breastfeeding, and postpartum care, it takes a specific mindset to make such a dedicated decision.
Our affordable program offers birthing families the education and technological skills needed for a safe, self-directed childbirth, with the mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual support of a BBC trained community childbirth coach.
The US maternity care system is failing the childbearing community. The lack of community-based providers has a gross number of: out of 100 births, only 10 to 12 will be attended by a midwife – and 9 out of 10 of these providers are white.1
Our program is designed to build a thriving workforce that serves underrepresented birthing families in Oklahoma seeking traditional methods of care.
Our coaches and consultants are trained in the Midwifery model of care, which is one of the most ancient traditions and professions in the world, with roots so deep that go back as far as 900 BCE (Before Common Era). That is almost 4000 years ago.
One direct result of our program is the creation of a spiritually diversified perinatal workforce that will became the future of community-based midwifery.
We provide care that is culturally congruent and family-centered, while amplifying Black and Indigenous practices for proprietary healing techniques of caring for the pregnant, birthing, lactating, and postpartum body.
We support ALL birthing families by encouraging the elimination of oppression and stigmatizing identity of Black and Indigenous led practices by those who frown upon traditional or lay-midwifery.
BBC uplifts the work of our ancestors and strives to be a leading-edge edge training academy in our own right. We are dedicated to consciousness in conception, consciousness in childbirth, and consciousness in parenting. This is not a new movement of self-science through the lens of childbirth and childrearing. We are representing our foremothers, their legacy and our mitochondrial DNA. This is our human birthright and we are intentionally building capacity for sustainability and the reestablishment of community-based childbirth support services for the future.
As a member of the National Perinatal Task Force it is our duty to provide dedicated resources for training and encouraging the innovation of an economic workforce for Black and Indigenous women who practice the cultural continuation of perinatal arts throughout the professional and social marketplaces of midwifery in America.
