Join your host Annette Perel, a doula for over 17 years, for The Clearbirth Podcast! In the first trimester, your favorite NYC Doula shouts out MomsRising. An organization committed to taking on issues that directly affect and impact women and mothers. Then, shifting away from the usual dynamic of the show, Annette instead highlights and reviews Hulu’s Aftershock documentary. The film follows the families of Shamony Gibson and Amber Rose Isaac, women and mothers who died due to childbirth complications. A reality all too common for Black women, women of color, and indigenous women in the U.S. Annette details key moments that stood out to her in the film, and even shares a client’s birth story and the egregious way her c-section was mishandled. In all, Annette argues that we don’t have to live in a country with poor maternal health, and shares thoughts on how getting insurance companies out of women’s bodies, prioritizing access to midwives, and being conscious of racial biases can dismantle the broken system in place.

To address the maternal health crisis in America, Congressional leaders have been fighting for critically important policies. Congresswoman Lauren Underwood, Congresswoman Alma Adams, Senator Cory Booker, and members of the Black Maternal Health Caucus introduced the Black Maternal Health Momnibus Act of 2021 (H.R. 959/S. 346). The Black Maternal Health Momnibus Act builds on existing legislation to comprehensively address every dimension of the maternal health crisis. Together, we can: Amplify the stories of Black and Brown birthing people. The United States is one of the most dangerous places to give birth compared to other developed countries, and Black and Brown birthing people are dying at 3 to 4 times the rate of their white counterparts.We need to address racial and gender bias in our medical system by amplifying and listening to the lived experiences of people directly impacted by the maternal health crisis. Support birth workers, doulas, and midwives. Did you know that both midwives and doulas are associated with improved maternal health outcomes, including lower rates of medical intervention during pregnancy? It’s time for us to join the movements, led by birth workers and birthing people, to ensure that every pregnant person has access to the pregnancy care they need and want – including access to doulas and midwives. Champion advocates fighting for policy change. The majority of pregnancy-related deaths in the United States are preventable. There are advocates fighting at the local, state, and federal level to pass legislation that will holistically address the maternal health crisis in our country and end maternal mortality. But they need constituents like you to put pressure on elected officials to make it a priority and bring about systemic change. . . .

Join your host Annette Perel, a doula for over 17 years, for The Clearbirth Podcast! Before diving into her knowledge on what could lower the maternal mortality rate, Annette recognizes Nicole Deggins, a certified nurse midwife who created the directory Sistas Midwife Productions to help Black people find the best birthing advocates for their labors. Next, Annette argues that the U.S. needs to return to a Midwifery form of care to lower the maternal mortality rate. She acknowledges the services Midwives provide and uses history, statistics, and career experience as evidence as to how elevating Midwives can save lives. Later Annette ends the episode with a thoughtful quote on the power of women. You’ll want to make sure you catch this week’s episode.

Join your host Annette Perel, a doula for over 17 years, for The Clearbirth Podcast! Broken up into segments that reflect the stages of pregnancy including, the First Trimester, Second Trimester, Third Trimester, Labor, and Postpartum, Annette details her longest labor with a magical client. But first, she takes the time to remember Dr. Shalon Irving PhD, MPH, MS, CHES, a mother gone too soon who died shortly after giving birth to her daughter Soleil. Dr. Shalon, an epidemiologist at the CDC, devoted much of her career to health care disparities and structural racism. Her death sparked outrage and heartache and showed the world that even an esteemed scholar and educated Black woman could be neglected by the healthcare system. Later, Annette tells the story of a special client’s long labor. Can you guess how many days it lasted? Yes, days. You’re gonna have to tune in to hear all about it. It’s an episode that will show you that every labor is different and that’s okay. We can’t wait to hear what you think about it.

Join your host Annette Perel, a doula for over 17 years, for The Clearbirth Podcast! Broken up into segments that reflect the stages of pregnancy including, the First Trimester, Second Trimester, Third Trimester, Labor, and Postpartum, Annette details why she became a doula. But first, she takes the time to remember Marlise Nicole Muñoz, a mother gone too soon who died while 14 weeks pregnant. Marlise’s pregnancy and death sparked much conversation about women’s autonomy over their bodies and challenged the law in Texas, which states that pregnant women must receive life sustaining measures even if, in Marlise’s case, they are brain dead. Later, Annette discusses what training as a doula was like, how it felt to (unexpectedly) catch her first baby, the different types of doulas—including death doulas, and her personal miscarriage experiences, IVF journey, and more. It’s an episode that will make you laugh out loud, pause, and reflect about all things life, death, birth, and babies. But that’s all we’ll share for now. You’ll have to tune in to hear how she realized she wanted to become a doula and what her math teacher said to her to make her realize the OBGYN route was not her path.

Join your host Annette Perel, a doula for over 17 years, for The Clearbirth Podcast! Broken up into segments that reflect the stages of pregnancy including, the First Trimester, Second Trimester, Third Trimester, Labor, and Postpartum, Annette details the pros and cons of having a home birth. But first, she takes the time to remember Nikita Washington, a Detroit mom of 12 who died shortly after giving birth. The maternal mortality rate for Black women and women of color is egregious, and before diving into every episode, Annette makes sure she acknowledges a mother gone too soon. Later, she dispels common myths people have about birthing at home and shares intimate and funny insight into learning she was pregnant with her son and deciding, after being a doula for 4 years, to forgo having him inside of a hospital. As the youngest of three, you would think Annette’s family would be used to her going against the grain, but even they were surprised and worried about her having a home birth. But that’s all we’ll share for now. You’ll have to tune in to hear how her own birth went and to decide if home birth is right for you.
