This week we launched Hey bb, a text message service run by real humans to answer questions about pregnancy, birth and parenthood — from how to advocate for yourself (systemic racism is real!) to explaining just what a doula does.
Pregnancy is a joyful time for many, but it's also fraught with anxiety — with worries about childbirth and how to care for a small human being. If this is you, or someone you love, LAist wants to help NAVIGATE the pregnancy, birth and postpartum phases of having a child.
If you would like to sign up for the service, text “heybb” to 73224.
Next week Kimberly Durdin is a licensed midwife, childbirth educator and founder of Southern California birthing and education center Kindred Space, which is owned and operated by Black midwives. She is also a mom, and this month she will be joining KPCC and LAist journalists to answer questions through Hey bb.
