"We do not support the visible identities or social constructs of people. We support the soul."

Wombs of Wata (WoW) is an international integration platform for birth and womb keepers. As a sister brand of Writer in the Tub, WoW provides in-person and online learning opportunities for keepers in the United States and Senegal. We center traditional midwifery from the African diaspora to add visibility to some of the most ancient reproductive care practices in the world.

Water is Healing

The Womb is Sacred

Plant Wisdom is Valued

The womb is a beacon for the soul and a portal for transformation. May we all return to rites of passage by honoring the ways of old.

~Joyell Arvella, Traditional Birth Keeper + Writer
