Tend was born out of our shared frustration with the state of birth in America.
After her own transformative pregnancy journey, Tamara began to research the history of birth across cultures and write a book about it. She called in Sophia, who was thinking about getting pregnant, to help dream up what the book could be. Together, they realized a shared calling to offer grounded, affirming, and spiritually nourishing content to others.
Tend is what we wish we'd had during our pregnancies—a sentiment we hear echoed by countless women. We hope you feel seen, supported, and celebrated on your unique journey. We hope you feel invited more deeply into your body, your wisdom, and your relationship with life.
Tamara & Sophia
COMMUNITY is essential
CONNECTION is inextricable
ANCIENT WISDOM is emergent
DIVERSITY is abundance
AWE is an invitation
Our work is grounded and inspired by the many elders, wisdom keepers, relatives, and midwives who have held us in our own journeys and who have worked for generations to protect and embody women's sovereignty and wisdom.
We are especially grateful to our Wisdom Council for their insights, encouragement, collaboration, and example which has tended the ground for us and for future generations.
