UBWCI provides holistic womb/birth worker training for women who have been called to guide families through the natural birthing process whether it is in a hospital, birthing center, or home. We feel that it is necessary to bring this healing information so that women reconnect with the power they hold within their own bodies allowing themselves to become empowered through the birthing process and beyond. Our curriculum consist of the the common foundations of any certification program (anatomy and physiology, lactation, stages of labor...etc). What separates us from other program is how we focus on the mental, spiritual, emotional and cultural aspect of the mommy plays a very important role as she moves through her rites of passage. At UBWCI we strive to move in balance with nature. While we support all women through the birthing journey, we strongly focus on the African womban and every womban of color by doing our part to rebuild that sisterhood and supporting the family unit. OUR CLASSES are created to fit into almost any life and learning style. We are constantly seeking new ways to assist in the continuing education for all of our birth workers. UBWCI graduates are part of a lifetime collective, based on unconditional sisterhood to support each other on our journey as we heal ourselves and assist in the healing process of our sisterhood and families. http://www.ubwci.com/
Time of the Locust: Travel into the heart and mind of an extraordinary autistic boy in this deeply imaginative debut novel of a mother’s devotion, a father’s punishment, and the power of love.
Sephiri is an autistic boy who lives in a world of his own making, where he dwells among imagined sea creatures that help him process information in the “real world” in which he is forced to live. But lately he has been having dreams of a mysterious place, and he starts creating fantastical sketches of this strange, inner world.
Brenda, Sephiri’s mother, struggles with raising her challenged child alone. Her only wish is to connect with him—a smile on his face would be a triumph. Meanwhile, Sephiri’s father, Horus, is sentenced to life in prison, making life even lonelier for Brenda and Sephiri. Yet prison is still not enough to separate father and son. In the seventh year of his imprisonment and the height of his isolation, Horus develops supernatural mental abilities that allow him to reach his son.
