Mission Statement of Mamma Primitiva/Birth Sovereignty

 

Mamma Primitiva is a worldwide online traditional midwifery educational program that believes that if given the opportunity and teachings every woman can know and help with the restoration of traditional birth. It is the work of the primitive mamma. 

The intention of Mamma Primitiva is to provide traditional midwifery education to a diverse group of women around the world. 100% of the money generated from the tuition paid to this school will go directly to supporting a midwifery model of care clinic in a impoverished and disaster stricken country. The intention is to keep the traditional midwife ways of birthing alive while at the same collaborating with birth practitioners from around the world.

Clare Loprinzi, founder of Mamma Primitiva and member of the medical advisory board . This Medical Advisory Board is a broad collaboration of practioneers advising our birth work to create the bridge between high technology obstetric care and the excellent outcomes provided by the low technology, hands on midwifery model of care in impoverished and disaster stricken countries. The collection of our data will provide inspiration for birthing centers worldwide."

This educational school could not be doing this without the help of many other people and you. We have much work to do to help Motherearth heal, and it starts with birth. I would like to thank you for joining us and hope that the healing begins with you and spreads throughout birth movements and groups such as Birth Sovereignty.

 
Birth Sovereignty
Birth Sovereignty supports basic public health measures and projects that create sovereignty in birth choices, health care access and environmental health as a vital component of broader cultural, social, economic and environmental sovereignty and justice issues. Land sovereignty is the right of working peoples to have effective access to, use of, and control over land and the benefits of its use and occupation, where land is understood as resource. Cultural Sovereignty includes having the right to traditional medicines and to maintain health practices, including the conservation of their vital medicinal plants. Food sovereignty is the right of peoples to healthy and culturally appropriate food produced through ecologically sound and sustainable methods, and their right to define their own food and agriculture systems.
 
Mission Statement

We support cultural practitioners and respect the diversity of cultural practitioners, midwives, obstetricians, naturopaths and healthcare practitioners working together to create a working model for continuity of care in our island communities. We are a broad collaboration of practitioners and families working to promote food, land and cultural sovereignty. We realize that each woman has a central role in all aspects of her ceremony of birth. Promoting non-traumatic healthy birth is the beginning of the many challenges we face. We support access to relevant diverse healthcare options throughout life. It is a right for people to affect change in their surroundings to protect and promote the health of their families, communities and environment.
