    Liberating Our Wellness - A Feminist Recovery Plan w/ Tanya Smith-Johnson

    Episode 10: Liberating Our Wellness - A Feminist Recovery Plan with Tanya Smith-Johnson 

    Tanya is a mother of 6, home birther, homeschooler, Navy veteran and midwife. Her Bachelor’s of Science in Biology and Masters of Science in Medical Science foundationed her didactic midwifery education from the Midwives College of Utah. Tanya is a contributing team member to the program development in Healthy Mothers Healthy Babies Coalition of Hawaiʻi, and she is a board member and Oʻahu representative on the Midwives Alliance of Hawaiʻi. Her work serving mothers full spectrum with hands-on, loving and supportive midwifery care coupled with her policy work with the Hawaiʻi State Commission on the Status of Women brings full circle her passion and work to support reproductive justice, birth equity, and the improvement of birth outcomes for BlPOC. 

    Women+ see the world, hold up the world 

    Economy = to manage the household 

    Seeing/sight to heal all the places, bring the light into the darkness = BIPOC, equity, inequity, power structures crumbling 

    VALUE, how we value, who we value - caregivers, elders, babies, farmers, connection, land, people, relationships 

    NOW is the time, call it what it is/what it was and NOW is the time, worldwide, to stay connected and in our power to birth a new way, our way of doing and being that respects, nurtures and communicates reciprocity to Earth Mother, mothers, elders, babies + caregivers as our most precious centers of economy that needs to inform global economy
