Natural Births

2 of my most favorite natural womyn inspirations had babies this year.

1.Erykah Badu gave birth to baby girl Mars Merkaba on February 4th shown here with the baby's father Jay Electronica.

On Twitter she explained that "her eyes are looking right into mine. She struggles to focus. So much in her. I wonder where she just came from. I mean ... her spirit."

Badu, who has two children from previous relationships named Seven Sirius (with Outkast's Andre 3000) and Puma Rose Sabti (with rapper the D.O.C.), did not explain the origin of the name. According to, the word Merkaba refers to a "divine light vehicle allegedly used by ascended masers to connect with and reach those in tune with the higher realms." The vehicle is described as a kind of three-dimensional Star of David that "transports spirit/body from one dimension to another." In the Bible, the Merkabah is described as a chariot made of angels with four wings and four faces that represent the four directions and take the form of a man, a lion, an ox and an eagle.

2. Lisa Bonet (Lilakoi Moon) gave birth to a baby boy on December 15th (my mom's birthday) named Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa.

This is the family minus Zoe ( Lola, Jason, Lisa pregnant with baby boy Nakoa)

Bonet gave birth on Dec. 15 to Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa, as per her agent, Tracy Christian. Bonet’s longtime lover, Jason Momoa, is the star of Stargate Atlantis and his mother was the first to announce the baby’s arrival. She posted on the fan forums on her son’s official Web site and also mentioned what the baby’s unique name meant. Nakoa stands for “warrior” and Mana means “strength/spirit.” Kaua is “rain” and Po is “dark” and that refers to the day he was born (it was a bad, rainy night in Los Angeles). His middle name, Namakaeha, is the same as his dad’s. The name is pronounced Na-Ko-Ah Wolf Mana-Ka-Ooh-Ah-Po Namma-Kay-Ah-Ha Mo-Moa, a Hawaiian source told Access Hollywood.
