Melanin Milk SD was born & raised by Chardá Bell, Pronounced (shar-day) rhymes with Hey!
I have 10+ years combined volunteer and professional birth work experience positively impacting the lives of others. My goal is to eradicate inequities and disparities through multi faceted support efforts such as eliminating barriers, networking to find trusted resources and offering mentorship, partnership or sliding scale fees.
Southeast BIPOC Community Doula School was born in 2021 and is coming to the Melanin Milk birthing collective, an effort to create synergy and circles of support within our community in an effort to defeat the Black maternal health crisis as well as to empower and connect BIPOC birth workers to one another and raise awareness around advocacy efforts and the presence, access and increasing of BIPOC birth workers.
As a San Diego native raised in an entrepreneur household, I’m defining my own lane in the field of reproductive health and wellness in our community to bridge the birthing community to fill the gaps we know exist through building connections, partnerships with each other to provide full wrap around care and warm hand offs for our clients.
The dedication I put forth to the birthing and parenting community of San Diego is a part of my lifeblood and shows in every aspect of my work. Everything I do is meant to uplift, empower and celebrate black family wellness and resilience.
My focus is on local marginalized communities with regard to maternal and family health with a particular emphasis on the Southeast San Diego, where I was raised from birth until my teen years and where majority of my family still resides in Skyline hills.
Melanin Milk is committed to the wellness of families in mind, body, and soul.
