Doula Queen

Shantrice King and I talk about her speech patterns and being a doula- specifically black women's reproductive health! She also talks about living in Paris, her Fulbright research, and the barriers black women face when it comes to decisions about their bodies. We constantly hear that "black women are dying at alarming rates during and after childbirth", but Shantrice wants us to go beyond that narrative. Thus, she will embark on her Masters in Nurse-Midwifery from Yale University this upcoming fall semester to achieve her dream of opening a birthing center.
