We believe in the importance of centering the real experiences of Black mothers/birthing persons. This effort deeply connects people to the narratives that relate to our work and, rather, to the people for whom this work was created. It also allows us to share the joys as well as sit with the gravity of the birthing experience.
The “Dear Baby…When I Love You, I Love Me” video series was created for such a purpose. The following video is the fourth in the series. It was made based on the true experience of Jessica Wade, Founding President & CEO of Mighty Little Giants, B.S., CLE, Certified Doula, whose son was born early. Her voice narrates the story.
