Join Artists-in-Residence Ogemdi Ude and Rochelle Jamila Wilbun for a discussion around their project AfroPeach, a series of dance workshops for Black postpartum people in Brooklyn. The project uniquely blends movement healing practices and birth work to provide holistic care for Black people after pregnancy and birth. The workshop offerings will focus on healing from the physical, mental, and emotional effects of pregnancy and birth, creatively processing birth stories, and building somatic relationships between new parents/caretakers and their babies. AfroPeach aims to support Black bleeding and birthing people to feel empowered and sacred in their bodies, and to decrease postpartum health disparities by fostering a supportive wellness space.
