#27: Infertility Trauma and The Intersection of Racial Trauma

Episode Summary

With the resurgence of the Black Lives Matter Movement in 2020, it has become evident there are many layers of institutionalized racism that need to be addressed and health care is one of them. The simple truth: not all women are treated with the same equalities when it comes to their health care.

Women’s health care, childbirth, hormones and menstrual equity is already a troubled topic then we add on a layer of race and we’ve got a large population of women and couples with additional barriers to face.

In this episode of the SHE Talks Health podcast, Dr. Loree Johnson, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) and Coach with more than 25 years of experience as a clinician, educator, and clinical supervisor sheds light on
