And on a human level, it is petrifying!We revisit our conversation with Anu from episode 1 to answer the hows and whys, and also talk about the ways that black mothers and our birthing partners can advocate for and safeguard our wellbeing.Visit www.fivexmore.com for resources for mothers, birthing partners and healthcare professionals.Use the code THRIVE to get 50% off a Black Ballad membership for a year at www.blackballad.co.ukJoin the conversation on social media! #BBSurvivalGuide See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
