This presentation focuses on the world of birth work and lactation care from the sacred ceremonies of Indigenous conception, pregnancy, birth, postpartum, lactation, and parenting. We will honor a view rarely seen and often buried from Indigenous voices in hopes to further protect these ceremonies as sacred and mitigate the health risks in Indigenous communities by highlighting the importance of “by us for us” care. Indigenous birthing bodies are sacred. Indigenous birth workers are sacred. Indigenous parenthood is sacred.
