The T-shirt asks, "Why is the USA ranked 50th in the world for infant mortality?"
In 2014, the USA was ranked 55th ~ perhaps the worst of all other highly industrialized countries in spite of spending the most on health care.
A Birthkeeper guards our most precious birthright-being born healthy
and loved into a flourishing and just world. We respect and protect
the relationships that support the life-giving capabilities of our mothers
who are birthing the future generations of happy, thriving humans,
and our Mother Earth who sustains and nourishes all life.
Motto: Healing Birth is Healing our Earth
Archetype/model of living: MotherBaby MotherEarth
is our primary, immutable relationship.
At the first BirthKeeper Summit, 2015, we will learn the essential work needed to change the current harmful societal paradigm. We will hear from visionaries, elders and young activists on what steps we can take to move forward to a better world of care and compassion. We will be inspired by the confluence of grassroots movements from diverse segments of our society--rights activists, environmental health proponents, social justice advocates, spiritual leaders, wellness promoters, and birth activists… all understanding the connections we hold together and the responsibility
we have to support and love our precious babies and the future of our beloved MotherBaby MotherEarth.
