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 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.
