Third Eye Collective/Integrated Lactation Consulting

Hirut credits her ancestors, unique background and intersectional identities for keeping her grounded and connected. As a reproductive justice advocate, doula, and lactation consultant, she has been developing a Black\queer\feminist approach to counselling and servicing pregnant and breastfeeding wombn.

She is passionate about her work with the Third Eye Collective in healing from, and organizing against intimate partner, familial, state and institutional sexual violence.

The investigative and reporting work that she has done in the last 17 years has been used by many, including the United Nations to determine humanitarian aid, and by local players to develop initiatives, programs and interventions in the area of mental health.
