Postpartum Healing Traditions in Food and Herbal Teas with Fatima Abdallah [ONLINE]

October 12, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

In this virtual class, we will explore 5 principles of traditional postpartum healing, drawing on wisdom shared by global traditions. We will focus on principles of nourishment through kitchen medicine- exploring herbs and foods that are commonly used especially in the SWANA region and common in other cultures of Asia and Africa.

Fatima serves birthing and postpartum families in the DC Metro area. She focuses her postpartum care on traditional postpartum services and has trained in Traditional Moroccan Postpartum Care. Other than her passion for birth support and building gentle birth awareness, she has a passion for bringing to light stories of global postpartum care practices that are familiar across time and space. Fatima offers a workshop on Ancient SWANA/African/Asian Postpartum Care Practices and specializes in the Moroccan Closing the Bones Ceremony. She is constantly in search of the lessons that birth and the postpartum have to offer.

Beginning in 2022, Fox Haven will pay $2 from every ticket sale to the Piscataway Land Trust as a LandBack tax for the land Fox Haven inhabits. Land taxes to indigenous nations function similarly to paying rent or a home mortgage. Payments such as a mortgage provide access to living space, whereas LandBack taxes recognize our access to stolen Indigenous land.

The Piscataway Land Trust is a long-term Indigenous-led effort led by the 501(c)(3) Cedarville Band of Piscataway Indians Inc. to restore and rematriate ancestral land and sovereignty in the Chesapeake region to Piscataway and other Chesapeake Indigenous people.

About LandBack Tax
From 2022 onward, Fox Haven will donate $2 from each event ticket to the Kikeokan Foundation to pay LandBack tax, acknowledging our access to stolen Indigenous land. The Kikeokan Foundation is an Indigenous-led initiative working to restore ancestral land and sovereignty to the Piscataway and other Indigenous communities of the Chesapeake.
