Birth is a natural process, but it doesn't always go according to plan. For black women, who are more likely to experience birth complications than any other group, having a doula can make all the difference. Meet Asia Price, co-founder of the Omaha Black Doula Association and Labor Support Doula, on today's episode. 

Asia and her organization are trained professionals who provide support and information to mothers during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. They can help with everything from managing stress to navigating the hospital system. Their mission is to support mothers in having positive birth experiences.

Although the accessibility to birth support is not always accessible or available to black women. The Omaha Black Doula Association is working to change that. This amazing organization is on a mission to reduce maternal morbidity and infant mortality.

What you'll learn:
1:35 The biggest hurdle black women suffer from with regard to birth and pregnancy
4:09 How to access the resources if they don't have health insurance
5:57 Teenage mothers
16:09 The importance of having doulas
26:59 Are doctors accepting of doulas?

You can support Asia and the Omaha Black Doula Association by donating funds to help black women afford a doula.
