Discussing Black Maternal Health in the U.S. with Dr. Jasmine Johnson
This episode of The Mommy Labor Nurse Podcast is all about the realities of black maternal health here in the US, and what we can do to spark change!
I actually put this article out last year, but I wanted to re-release it this week in honor of Black Maternal Health Week 2022.
to spark any kind of change surrounding racism in healthcare (and specifically in black maternal health) I truly believe that awareness is the first step.
Knowledge is power!
With my first pregnancy, I thought I could “wing” the contractions…. I quickly figured out that I should have taken a birth course! The second time around, I listened to this podcast and was way more prepared! Thank you!!!
I so much appreciate the information the you share! During my pregnancy I was always looking responses for my questions and always found some answers or guidance with you. Today I was struggling with pumping and here you are with a great show about it.
I love listening to mommy labor nurse! Now through two pregnancies!
