In this episode I am joined by Ngozi Tibbs, a certified childbirth trainer and educator through Lamaze International, an international board certified lactation consultant, and co-founder of the Pittsburgh Black Breastfeeding Circle. With a Bachelor’s degree in maternal child health and a Master’s in public health, Ngozi has served as a private and community based doula, currently provides childbirth education and lactation consulting, and is involved with the non-profit Healthy Start. Often known to share her personal birth stories - including her fifth child’s birth in a car - she believes the best way to approach birth and breastfeeding is through lots of support, and humor.

I had the privilege of listening to Ngozi speak quite a few years ago at a conference, andI was so impacted by her presentation that I included a story about experience that in my book, Babies Are Not Pizzas. In this interview, we have a candid conversation about community support, racism, and the needs of today’s birthing families.
