La Mama Vida: Re-membering Motherhood by Brenda Montano
La Mama Vida is my most personal zine yet. It is the greatest love letter to my son, Soliah. In November 2015 I was blessed to discover I was carrying a life seed, a human spirit that held within them the ancestors of both myself and my beautiful partner. I began to write because writing is my medicine. It allows me to discover my truest feelings and develop a method to communicate them with myself and others.
Dated at the top, you will find a series of writings that chronicle my journey. Included is Yo Soy Madre, a self-affirming piece on embracing myself as mother; Dispel the Shame to Set Our Bodies Free; Los Tres Espiritus: How to Maintain Balance; Santa Comida Madre de Diosas; Our Chords to the Earth Are Not Cut At Birth, a poem; and Soliah Sun: A Birth Story.
