I’m a femtech founder, writer, speaker and maternal and infant health strategist with a bold vision to transform the experience of motherhood for all and to eradicate racial disparities in birth and breastfeeding. 


what i believe

I’m on a mama mission.

My work is dedicated to rewriting the story of motherhood and parenting as important work, inspiring mothers to live their best life and to making sure every mama has the social, cultural and policy support to thrive! 

About 86% of women become mothers at some point during their childbearing years, so ensuring mothers have the cultural recognition, community support, and mama motivation to excel as carers and individuals is an issue that concerns all women. 

I speak on motherhood and the intersection of race, class and policy.

The Big Letdown

I break breastfeeding out of the realm of “personal choice” and shows our broader connection to an industrialized food system that begins at birth, the fallout of feminist ideals, and the federal policies that are far from family friendly. The Big Letdown uncovers the multibillion-dollar forces battling to replace mothers’ milk and the failure of the medical establishment to protect infant health.

Birth & Breastfeeding Post-Pandemic: The Silver Linings Playbook

The Covid-19 pandemic completely upended birth and breastfeeding norms. In addition, the inadequacies and inequities of our healthcare system, particularly as it relates to birthing people and new parents, were laid bare. But times of upheaval are also times of radical change. History proves that pandemics are once in a generation opportunities for societal shifts. One thing is clear, we cannot go back to “business as usual” in birth and breastfeeding. But there is a small window to act—and we must act decisively and collectively for all parents and babies. Learn what you can do now!

Let’s talk about how!

Let’s Get To Work Transforming Systems, Organizations, Policies and Cultures.

I’ve spent nearly a decade working on-the-ground working in various cities across the U.S. capturing and learning from the lived experience of pregnancy, childbirth and parenting for all types of families. 

I leverage that experiential knowledge and my passion for writing and storytelling to advocate for policy change, advise employers, brands and public health organizations on innovative ideas and tactical solutions to truly serve the needs of all parents, and to create media and technology platforms to push for social change.

The IRTH App

Irth (as in Birth, but we dropped the B for bias) is a“Yelp-Like” Review and Rating App for Black and brown women and birthing people to find and leave reviews of Ob/GYNS, birthing hospitals and pediatricians. Racism and bias in health care has been directly to the high rates of Black and Latina maternal mortality and morbidity rates. Irth leverages the consumer power of Black and brown people to bring transparency and public accountability to the medical system. Search reviews for yourself. Leave one for others. Made with love by and for people of color.  Download in Apple and Google Play stores. 

The Birthright Podcast

Birthright—a podcast about joy and healing in Black birth. You may have heard the negative statistics and deadly headlines related to the Black maternal mortality crisis in the U.S. As we work to end this injustice, we can’t forget about joy as a tool for birth equity. By seeking out and exploring positive birth stories we can build confidence, find solutions and identify blind spots in our quest to make the birth experience equitable for all. Join me every other Wednesday as I reclaim joy, respect and positivity as a birthright, one story at a time.
