Julie Andrews, LCSW is sharing a glimpse of the Native or Indigenous mothers pregnancy, birth and postpartum experience. This is such a valuable discussion and even though we just scratch the surface of cultural and societal understanding, it is a deeply needed start on our podcast to understanding Native mothers experience.

Julie discusses some of the mental health impacts affecting Native mothers related to pregnancy and postpartum. She is sharing what she's seen and understands mostly of the stressors and strengths of Native mothers in her local community.

She touches on the challenges of identity, historical trauma, current issues that mothers face in the local clinic and ways in which the community is working to support pregnant and postpartum mothers.
