Project Description

 

I know that dietary & lifestyle changes make a huge difference when it comes to our reproductive health. I’m on a mission to educate black & brown youth about using our food & plants as medicine.

Within a year or two of their first period, many young girls begin to experience painful cramps. This has to change. We live in a society that still puts a lot of shame around our period blood. Our girls are often left to suffer in silence.

 

 

 

We’re taught this is something to be embarrassed by instead of our menstrual cycles being a sacred & vital function of our wombs.

 

 

“In some Black family cultures, menstruation is simply considered a private ordeal that's not to be discussed, even among family. This can also lead to under-reporting of issues.” says board-certified OB/GYN Charis Chambers, MD, aka The Period Doctor.

"The cross-generational lack of discussion is huge," she says. “Moms don't necessarily discuss their difficulties with their daughters—not really understanding that they are doing a disservice because their daughters sometimes have to repeat the same experiences."

 

I started menstruating when I was 10 years old. I remember being at home alone and suddenly feeling this extremely sharp pain. I literally thought that I was dying.

Unfortunately, my mom was out running errands.  I just laid on my bedroom floor curled up in a fetal position for what felt like an eternity.

When she finally returned & saw me. My mom took me to the bathroom and showed me where she kept her maxi pads. I was then given Motrin, a hot water bottle and told to lay down until the pain subsided. This was my introduction to my moon cycle 

 

 

Like many other girls in this country, I attended public schools where very little was taught on this subject. If and when offered, health classes usually cover the bare minimum & aren’t empowering at all.

This inspired me to create my business Honeydew Holistics so I can support women on their wellness journeys and teach them how to holistically address reproductive health issues and restore their hormonal balance.

As a full spectrum doula & certified yoni steam practitioner, I also provide tools & resources to prepare them for a plant-based pregnancy and holistic postpartum recovery.

 

I'm asking for $50,000 so that I can bring this program into community centers, public schools, and shelters throughout New York City

This will allow me to do the following:

  • Purchase educational tools
  • Employ other women to facilitate workshops
  • And hire a course developer & web designer. I want to create online modules so girls living outside of New York can participate as well.

 

 

Thank you for helping me to birth my vision and for seeing & supporting young girls of color!!

 

Sincerely,

Alicia Hudson
