In episode 9 I talk with Miriam Zoila Pérez, the author of the Radical Doula Guide and a reporter that writes about the impacts of racism on birth and health outcomes. We talk about the impacts of racism on birth outcomes, what works to buffer the health effects of discrimination, and what the research tells us about the impacts of discrimination on health in general. They talk about why they started the Radical Doula website and how doula culture in the U.S. has changed in the 10+ years since then. In min 36-59 we talk about joy practices, visioning the future we want, and house plants.
