Show Notes Chapter Markers

This month, we get REAL in exploring the incredible power of community-based, BIPOC-led doulas and how they're changing the game for birthing families. The numbers don't lie. The truth is that Black birthers have a 53% higher risk of dying in the hospital during childbirth - no matter their bank account size, insurance status, or any other social determinant of health. So what gives? As LaVie Montgomery of Sistas Caring 4 Sistas (SC4S) shared, "It all comes down to race." 

SC4S is flipping the script by bringing fierce advocacy and hands-on support to help tackle the maternal health inequities hitting US Black mothers hardest. Join us in this important conversation.


We'll see you same time, same place next month. Until then, peace.
