Kntrice Anadumaka has a powerful story of surviving COVID-19 while pregnant when she was not vaccinated early in the pandemic. In this episode, Kntrice shares about her experience with COVID-19 and vaccinations, as well as her fears and concerns of navigating the health system as a woman of color. We’ll then be joined by Dr. Laura Riley, Obstetrician-in-Chief at New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center and Given Professor and Chair for the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Weill Cornell Medicine. Together, she and Dr. Pimentel will discuss COVID-19 and the health of the pregnant person and baby, including the impact of COVID-19 on pregnant women, especially women of color, as well as concerns around health disparities, breastfeeding, and vaccine safety.
