We need to tell our own stories.
Listen to Me is the story of four women and the cost of motherhood. These women stand at the front lines of the black maternal health struggle as birth workers and public health experts while walking the delicate tightrope of birthing in the United States. This is a story of the deep complexities and troubling challenges that black mothers experience. Beyond dismal statistics, Listen to Me centers the voices and spirit of black women.
