In this special bonus episode of This is Motherhood, host Joyce Brewer speaks with Kimberly Seals Allers, the creator of Black Breastfeeding Week, the Irth app, which is a helpful birth resource and community for BIPOC mothers, and host of the Birthright podcast, which highlights stories of joy and healing in Black birth. She is also a leading writer and commentator on birth, breastfeeding and the intersection of race, policy, and culture.

In this episode, Kimberly talks all about her experience as a BIPOC single mother and how it informed her vision to transform the experience of motherhood for BIPOC women – and why she wants to eradicate racial disparities in birth and breastfeeding and bring joy to all mother’s birth experiences.
