Does Cardi B Have to Choose Between Her Career & Her Baby?

This morning on Hot 97, Ebro in the Morning, Cardi B got vulnerable about her choice to have a baby while she is at the peak of her career in the music industry.

Are you a woman who has felt judged by others because you chose to start or expand your family while you were at the height of your career success?

Listen to Yael B. Yisrael, owner of Flatbush Doulas, as she discusses the thoughts that were shared in the interview. Please leave your comments below, so we can open up this important discussion.

What is Stopping Black Women From Resting?

Throughout history, the Black woman has been the carrier and sustainer of life for those in her immediate family, and community.

The advent of chattel slavery in America interrupted that history, and instituted a new brutal reality, in which enslaved African women were suddenly also the sustainers of their enemies lives and livelihoods.

Listen to Yael B. Yisrael, Owner of Flatbush Doulas, as she speaks to Black women about the importance of rest, and the freedom in declaring oneself worthy of rest.

Over 23,000 children are homeless in NYC, and many more are living in poverty. 1 in 3 families struggle to buy enough diapers to be able to change them when needed. Diapers cannot be purchased with food stamps. 

We CAN prevent child abuse and neglect, by providing clean diapers to families who are in need of them.
