In this episode, Cristen speaks with Jesanna Cooper, an obstetrician at an urban Alabama hospital serving a high-risk population. Dr. Cooper describes the unintentional outcomes of a change in practice at her clinic: Once they implemented a feminist care model, putting women in charge of their own medical decisions, Cesarean rates began to drop and other outcomes, like breastfeeding and NICU admissions, improved. Dr. Cooper also discusses her own job-related trauma and medicine’s blame culture. (May 2017)
