Taking Care of Black Mamas
April 12, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Meditation & Wellness Session
As part of NBEC’s celebration of Black Maternal Health Week, we are proud to present this session in partnership with Expectful’s Black Mamas Meditate Collection.
The goal of this panel and interactive session is to highlight the power of mindfulness/meditation in pregnancy, in particular how this can help Black Women and address disparities in maternal health outcomes. We will begin with a panel featuring expert voices leading research on the impact of meditation on stress reduction during pregnancy and real mothers who have utilized meditation and mindfulness to support their health and wellbeing during the perinatal period. We will close the event with a custom-guided group meditation designed especially for Black Mothers.
Featuring Nathalie Walton, CEO of Expectful, Dr. Anne Porter, Veladya Chapman, Earth Mama Medicine, and Denise Vasi, founder and Editor in Chief of MAED.
Meditation led by Melissa Nkomo.
