Motherhood, a Pandemic and Race: Meet Dr. Erin King-Mullins founder of Corona Mamas and Featured on the Today Show

Dr. Erin King-Mullins said she had trouble finding the support and information she needed after becoming a new mom during the pandemic. As she recovered from preeclampsia, struggled with breast feeding and how to keep her newborn safe during a pandemic, she found that finding the information in one place was a challenge.

So she created Corona Mamas - a website full of great information for moms in all stages of motherhood, from self-care to emotional support to great recipes for breastfeeding moms, you can find it all.

Listen to her share her story and why she thought it was important to start this movement.

About the Podcast

In My Shoes Podcast
You don't know what it's like until you've been In My Shoes
In My Shoes is a podcast about women of color and the issues we face but sometimes don't get to talk about. We will give our perspective, allowing you a glimpse into what it's like to deal with racism, infertility, mental illness, parenting, relationships, colorism, politics, hair, health, you name it - in our shoes.

Sometimes it just takes a moment to hear a personal story to realize things aren't always the way they seem. When you hear someone's personal story you can see things through their eyes, from their perspective, even if it's just for a moment - but that moment may be all it takes to change the way you think about or view women from other cultural backgrounds and skin tones. Walk a mile in my shoes, and find out things aren't always the way they seem.
