Episode Info: Quiana Welch joins us for a raw, honest conversation about her training and experiences through pregnancy, birth, and beginning her postpartum journey. Quiana is a high-level multi-sport strength athlete, who holds an American record in the snatch, and has competed in Crossfit, GRID, and even womens football. We talk about expectations versus reality, training strategies, racism in healthcare, and being okay getting angry! Quiana gives us the rundown on all the resources that helped her throughout her pregnancy, so all you mamas and mamas-to-be, listen and take notes!   Links: Instagram: Quiana Welch Instagram: Badass Motherbirther Instagram: Empowered Birth Project   Coaching and Programming: Brianna Battles: Pregnancy and Postpartum Athleticism   Documentary: The Business of Being Born    We discussed the unfortunate death of Kira Johnson during childbirth, the daughter of Judge Hatchett. This is what has grown from that situation, and we’re sorry for getting the name incorrect in the episode!  4Kira4Moms was founded with the mission to advocate for improved maternal health policies and regulations, to educate the public about the impact of maternal mortality in communities, provide peer support to the victim’s family, friends, and promote the idea that maternal mortality should be viewed,and discussed as a human rights issue. Charles Johnson, founder and 4kira4moms worked relentlessly with congress to pass the preventing maternal death act (H.R.1318). This milestone legislation is the first ever to combat the maternal death crisis in the United States. The bill was signed into law December 21, 2018 and dedicated to TGIF memory of Kira Dixon Johnson.    Get some new gear from our Teespring Shop.
