Leading the revolution in radical self-care with Latham Thomas

Fact: In the United States, Black women die from pregnancy-related complications three to four times the rate of white women. This is true no matter how much money they make, how much education they have, or where they live. We should all be furious that Black women are dying from preventable pregnancy-related causes… and WE ARE.

We’re joined by Latham Thomas, a Celebrity Doula and Maternal Wellness Expert, named one of Oprah Winfrey’s Super Soul 100. Latham founded Mama Glow, a global women’s health and education brand serving women along the childbearing continuum. She is leading a revolution in radical self-care, guiding women everywhere to “mother themselves first,” and we’re grateful for her voice to help shed some light on these important topics on our show today!

Latham's newest book, Own Your Glow: A Soulful Guide to Luminious Living and Crowning the Queen was JUST released on paperback from Hay House on June 16th. Learn more, and connect with Latham: @mamaglow @glowmaven

Back to School(?!?) with Teacher, Activist, & People Mag's "Sexiest Teacher Alive," Nicholas Ferroni

Going back to school is the topic hot on everyone's minds right now… and whether you're a mom or not, everyone seems to have an opinion. On one hand, we hear that we may be damaging our children (both educationally & emotionally) by restricting their socialization. On the other hand, we hear from experts and teachers across the country who say there is no possible way to return to school safely.We’re joined today by Nicholas Ferroni, a high school history teacher from Union, NJ who has a thing or two to say on the matter… and there’s no one whose opinion we value more. Why? Nicholas has been noted as one of the "100 Making a Difference” and one of the "Most Influential Educators In America;” he was named "Upstander of the Year" by the Human Rights Campaign for his work with LGBTQ youth; he designed a social experiment on the important of gender equality in politics that Whoopi Goldberg called “the best social experiment ever” (no big deal!)... oh and he was named the Sexiest Teacher Alive by People Magazine - CASUAL!!Nicholas is a walking, talking example of that which he preaches… he is a social activist who educates, mentors and inspires students causing them to not only BE inspired & to INSPIRE OTHERS. We’re grateful he’s here today to inspire us, and shed some light on this sticky topic from his view on the front lines of the conversation.
