About Mbuya Mavhu

Mbuya Mavhu is a first generation Zimbabwean-American mother of four, grandmother and wife. She has been an educator in an African-centered school for 19 years, has offered bana chimbusa services in her community for 12 years and has been working as a postpartum doula  for a year.  Blactivist, home birth mom and natural childbirth evangelist are other labels she embraces.

This space, Chimonera Chedu (our wrapping cloth), is a result of her passion for researching and sharing traditional African solutions to the modern challenges of female adulthood, partnering, parenting.
