    25. Meet the (MVP) Midwife

    25. Meet the (MVP) Midwife

    This week we get upfront, down low and everywhere in between with UCL Consultant Midwife and global advisor to The Royal College of Midwives, Dr Yana Richens OBE. Dr Richens, or Yana, as she says we can call her, was the first midwife to be appointed with the prestigious Mary Seacole Fellowship by the Department of Health and has been recognised by the Queen for her tireless work not only delivering babies but improving the outcome of Black and minority mothers. This episode we ask Yana about the reality of life as a midwife, what we can expect from the NHS as Black mothers, and how we can advocate best for ourselves when we give birth. We talk everything from birthing partners to policy making to pooing yourself, in this open, eye-watering and essential pod. 💩🤱🏾

    24. Is Beauty Only Skin Deep?

    24. Is Beauty Only Skin Deep?

    As a Black woman what does it mean to be beautiful? To be sexy? And to feel attractive and accepted? This episode we delve into our own beliefs about beauty, body image and hair choice (on our head and elsewhere), unpacking what we truly think verses what society would have us believe. How much are we, and more importantly our children, influenced by popular mainstream culture? Are Black features deemed more attractive on racially ambiguous women? And should we let our ten-year-old daughters shave their legs? Join us as we undress our thoughts and feelings on what’s hot, what’s not, and why we do what we do to feel beautiful. This episode is proudly part of Dove’s Crowning Glory campaign. 💅🏾👙🕊

    23. Black In White Spaces

    23. Black In White Spaces

    This episode we get upfront about the D word. Diversity. We all need some D in our lives, but how much is too much? And how much is too little? We’ve all been the only Black in the room at some point in our lives. But what about the only Black in the private school? The only Black in the corporate office? The rural Village? Are we gifting our children opportunities by being in predominately white spaces? Or gifting them therapy-worthy baggage? We reflect on our own eclectic experiences and ~argue~ debate about the pros and cons of being the Only Black. 

    This eye opening, hilarious (if we do say so ourselves) episode is brought to you by Posh Nat, Working Class Carina, Catherine and Libby. 👩🏼👩🏼👩🏼👩🏼👩🏼👩🏼👩🏾

    22. One Shot Is All It Took - A Father’s Day Special

    22. One Shot Is All It Took - A Father’s Day Special

    This episode we get upfront and personal with renowned podcaster, entrepreneur and single Dad, Tazer, from 3 Shots of Tequila. With Father’s Day fast approaching we decided to hear first hand from a very upfront dad, to understand better a man’s perspective on the reality of raising a daughter. How is parenting across gender, and what’s with the much talked about daddy-daughter dynamic? Tazer bares all, sharing his shocking ‘one night only’ crash journey into fatherhood (yes, it seems one shot is all it took) as we dive into the dos and don’ts of co parenting and unpack the way we were parented verses our parenting choices. Join us for some serious baby father banter whilst picking up some gems of advice from this Black upfront Dad.

    21. Upfront with Candice Brathwaite

    21. Upfront with Candice Brathwaite

    Thanks to Nike we’ve caught up with Olympic athlete mothers and gold champion medalists, so it’s only right that this week we get upfront with the front runner of Black motherhood, best selling author, presenter and change maker, Candice Braithwaite.

    This episode Candice reveals the truth about living life in the public eye, talks openly about her traumatic birth experience and shares why being an outspoken dark skinned black woman comes with a price. (Yep, we discuss that documentary.) This woman keeps it 100. We felt enlivened and emboldened by her energy and know that you will too.
