Blood´s Song - Ty guaji
Mujeres Bachué is a space where roads come across, a bridge between the knowledge of the traditional language- our indigenous communities have guarded around midwifing and a holistic understanding and care of woman- and the language of science, academy and allopathic medicine.
We live in a moment where the language of western rationality is technologically advanced and studied enough, - and has an open heart and mind- to understand and explain the millenary knowledge and cultural wealth the indigenous communities of the territory have guarded. This global moment we live in is absolutely relevant to affect the quality of lives of woman in Colombia and the world.
Through the art of care, we accompany woman empowering them to make informed, free and safe decisions during 4 special moments of her blood. These are; when her umbilical cord is cut when she is born, when she has her first period, when she has her first sexual relation, and her first birth, or the last blood she has before she enters menopause, or when she becomes a grandmother for her community.
Mujeres Bachué works towards recovering the art of taking care of woman, understanding that when we have healthy women in all their bodies- in the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual-,we are setting in the best ground to renew our social weave. In this path we have come together to contribute to the development, promotion, guarantee and restitution of human rights, particularly, sexual and reproductive rights of women. Here, we find that resignifying pleasure is how we support healthy woman and healthy societies.
