NATAL is a podcast docuseries about having a baby while Black in the United States. We pass the mic to Black parents, to tell their stories in their own words, about their pregnancy, birthing, and postpartum care, in their own words. The docuseries also highlights the birthworkers, medical professionals, researchers, and advocates fighting daily for better care for Black birthing parents.
