In Stance, Chrystal Genesis is joined by actor and activist Alix Wilton-Reagan to unpack pregnancy and birthing experiences right now. Bringing to the forefront women’s voices from around the world, we explore what it means to be pregnant during the pandemic with Doula Maiysha Campbell Kramer, and Positive Birthing Movement Founder and Author Milli Hill.
We exchange views on pregnancy while living with a visible or invisible disability with Tania Akbarali on anxiety, on autism and neurodiversity with Samantha Stein, and physical disability and pregnancy with Dr. Erin Andrews.
Next, we head to Ecuador, speaking to Ofelia, Olga and Maria, three Kichwa midwives at the AMUPAKIN clinic to explore the power and history of vertical birthing. We are also joined by Dr. Nina Moeller, a longtime associate of AMUPAKIN to find out more.
Ending the show, Stance speaks with Ghanaian Australian musician Genesis Owusu about his album Smiling With No Teeth. He takes us through his musical influences, creative process and shares his joy at playing live just recently.
