In this episode, we discuss Chavi’s new book High Risk. In her book, Chavi explores the complexities of reproductive life and everything we lose when we don’t speak honestly about women’s health. We lose the ability to: 1- care for people in our community who may have experienced a miscarriage or still birth, 2- dictate our own care and policy on women’s health, 3- share our stories and unique experiences. Chavi discusses both the incredible strides that modern medicine has made while acknowledging issues and areas that desperately demand progress.
