When Kelly gave birth to her 3rd child in the hospital she
saying, "I need to push!" but was dismissed by the nurse. She was blessed to have her mom in the room who took control because Kelly's son was right there, crowning, between her legs. Kelly is another person of color who was not seen or heard in the hospital. Join us as we talk to Kelly and her husband Jason about childbirth, trusting your body and the huge problem in America for women of color: Not being seen and heard!
