Set of 4 A5 menstrual blood and ink paintings - womb, yoni, placenta and breast.
Woman have wombs, women bleed, women birth, women breastfeed. These are biological facts - beautiful truths - yet somehow now seen as a crime to say. Language isn't inclusive if it excludes women.
Please - let us not exclude women from birthwork and women's health. Yes, there are those that menstruate, and people that birth - and I respect that, and wish all people the love and respect they deserve.
Women also still deserve that respect and love. We deserve to be able to celebrate the feminine, and see our own female identity and language in conversations about womb healing, menstruation, pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding.
Let's continue to say woman and mother and breast when we're talking about birthing and feeding our babies.
