WOMANLY MAGAZINE | Issue No. 4: black maternal health


In this issue you will find preventative health information on preterm birth, gestational diabetes and where to find the best resources for new mothers as well as interviews with a midwife, a nurse practitioner, an economic researcher, a formerly incarcerated mother, and more.

Our fourth print issue seeks to champion stories that don’t often get told, including postpartum family portraits, a water-birth photo essay, adoption advice, and works representing the child rearing experience from across the African diaspora.
