Hormonal birth control has been linked to depression, autoimmune disease, cervical cancer, fatal blood clots and other chronic conditions; yet it is still prescribed to otherwise healthy folks as a panacea for every hormonal and reproductive issue.

Say Her Name: Black Maternal Mortality & Honoring Mothers Lost

This month we celebrate mothers and we  acknowledge and honor the lives of mothers we have lost as a result of childbirth or childbirth related causes. Black women and Native women are 4 to 5 times more likely than white women to die during childbirth or due to childbirth related causes. What does this this mean for the families that are left behind when lives are lost? How does one heal after tragedy hits and how does one spring into action to seek justice? Join two fathers who have been directly impacted by this issue. Charles Johnson, the founder of 4Kira4Moms who became an advocate for birthing people when he tragically lost his wife Kira Johnson after a routine C-section in California. Charles will be joined by Bruce McIntyre, partner of Amber Isaac, a Bronx woman who tweeted about medical neglect and lost her life days later during childbirth. Both Kira and Amber’s stories have sparked rage, sorrow, fear and action.

Birth Equity: A Spotlight on Systemic Disparities & Black Maternal Health

Black Maternal Health Week

COVID-19 has exposed the fragility of our medical system. We know that maternal mortality and morbidity disproportionately affects black women and during this time, with rapidly changing policies and lack of support, we know that there are gaps that will leave black mothers exposed and can potentially exacerbate their health risk. In this informative webinar with Joia Crear-Perry, MD, Founder and President of the National Birth Equity Collaborative, we will explore the health disparities that black women face, unpack the policy gaps and we will frame what birth equity really means. We will look at the structural obstacles and the work being done to challenge the system and make it safe for all of us. We want to move away from fear and step into self-determination. We want people to feel empowered to take action and advocate for themselves and take steps toward a more equitable future.
