Session 79: Managing Struggles with Fertility

The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a Licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible version of ourselves.

This week I’m joined by another one of my incredible line sisters to discuss struggles with fertility. Our guest therapist this week is Licensed Psychologist, Dr. Andreka Peat. Dr. Peat and I discussed some of the cultural issues that impact the conversation around Black women and fertility, some of the alternative paths to motherhood her clients have employed, how she helps her clients manage their mental health through these processes, and she shared her favorite resources for anyone who wants to learn more about the topic.
