I met Tassie through instagram a little before I became pregnant with Malakhai. She had just an amazing spirit and so much knowledge about the female body, pregnancy, and motherhood. She was of great help throughout my pregnancy and I’m glad to have her in my life. So let’s find out more about this Boss Lady!
Hey Tassie! So glad to feature you. First, tell the readers a little about you.
I am a crystal toting, smudge burning, mystical mom of 9 from Mississippi. I am here, in this life, fulfilling my divine purpose and soul mission of guiding wombmen into motherhood. I prepare wombmen for unassisted childbirths by educating, enriching, and empowering them to embrace the ways of our ancestors and birth how they want!
I know you have 9 kids. Did you always want a large family?
I did not always want a large family. My large family came about when I took heed to a more natural approach regarding my health, and said “No!” to hormonal birth control. I became a holistic, unconventional wombman. I am grateful for the ancestors that chose to come through me, in the form of my children.
How are you able to manage your kids and get me-time?
Managing 9 children is a lot of work. That’s 9 different personalities, and 9 different ages (with the exception of my twins). We try to stay on a routine: doing the same things everyday. My “me” time is almost nonexistent. I’m up early before they wake up: I’m doing my tarot card readings, talking with my spiritual team, and posting on Instagram. Nights are spent reading and preparing for the next day.
Do you homeschool? If so, is it difficult to manage lessons with children of varying ages?
I do homeschool. Homeschooling is definitely a lifestyle. The older ones get started on their lessons while I work with the younger ones.
I see your posts posts all the time, advocating for unassisted childbirths. Tell us about why and how you got into that.
I became an advocate for unassisted childbirths once others started asking me how did I do it and why. Also, the maternal and infant mortality rate of black mamas and black babies is alarming! I believe we can change that by having healthy moms birth their babies at home.
For those readers who don’t know, you run your own business. Tell us a little about what that entails.
Yes! I do run a business: Tassie Teaches, in which I offer unassisted childbirth consultations. We go over health and nutrition, prenatal care, birth supplies, birth certificate information, and more! It’s kind of like a virtual birthworker (doula). As the saying goes: when the student is ready, the teacher will appear! The professional doula teacher has appeared for this doula student!
With having an online business, have you thought of doing webinars or master classes?
Yes, I do plan to do master classes, and start up my YouTube channel in the near future!
What do you want women to know about unassisted childbirth?
I want wombmen to know that their body is DESIGNED to birth babies, just as it is DESIGNED to make babies!
Where can people find you?
