The Motherly Podcast features honest conversations about modern motherhood with inspiring leaders—who also happen to be mothers. These incredible women, like Kristen Bell, Sen. Tammy Duckworth, and Gabrielle Union, are helping to redefine motherhood, using their voices to uplift women with practical ideas and expert insights. The Webby Award winning podcast is hosted each week by Liz Tenety, an award-winning journalist and co-founder of Motherly.
In this special bonus episode of This is Motherhood, host Joyce Brewer speaks with Dr. Kameelah Phillips, an OBGYN, lactation consultant, and advocate for eradicating racism in medicine. Dr. Philips runs her own private practice, Calla Women’s Health, and in this conversation, Joyce and Dr. Phillips discuss racial disparities in maternal healthcare, the health issues that moms of color should be particularly aware of, and how BIPOC moms can best advocate for themselves with medical providers to take control of their health.
