As a US-based Black nurse-midwife, Lucinda Canty knows that nurses and midwives do not leave their prejudices at home.

In this episode, we talk about the challenges of addressing racial disparities in reproductive health – and the power of bringing people into conversation about their shared experiences. [Content warning: This episode contains conversations about medical trauma and negligence]
