share close

In honor of Black Maternal Health Week we’re circling back to one of our inventory episodes that so many of you enjoyed. For our new listeners, you’re in for a treat.

This episode features Dr. Kristy Christopher-Holloway, a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) here in the state of Georgia. In our conversation Dr. Kristy and I discuss what life can look like during pregnancy, birth and in the postpartum period. Plus we explored the growing research around Black women’s experiences giving birth, how the process of giving birth can be traumatic, the difference between postpartum depression and “the baby blues”, and how Black women can be strong advocates for ourselves in medical settings.
