Do Black Women Need Doulas More Than Anyone?

“We need to speak the uncomfortable truth that women—and especially black women—are too often not listened to or taken seriously by the health care system, and therefore they are denied the dignity that they deserve.”

A huge thank you to all the women who contributed to this very important Parents piece on black mothers, but I’m indebted to U.S. Senator Kamala Harris for providing her personal response just hours after her political announcement. I’m beyond honored (and even Parents was shocked). But that just goes to show her unwavering commitment to black moms.
