Tennielle shares her experience of what it’s like to be pregnant when you are Black and plus size, along with her compelling birth story. “Nearing the end of my pregnancy, I had a very intimate and pointed conversation with my OB; I told her to fight for me. I read too many articles for my own good about the maternal death rate for Black women. Not only was I Black but I was a plus size pregnant woman.” This is an episode that care providers should listen to, and we can all learn a great deal from!
