Black women and Fertility will offer a safe space for women of color to learn more about their reproductive health and fertility, and how to address reproductive adversity on a medical and personal level. To create an ongoing series of events that actively engages and supports women of color in safeguarding their reproductive health and fertility, as well as building resilience and utilizing community resources to deal with reproductive adversity.

The stigmas surrounding fertility sometimes makes it hard to talk to family, friends or medical professionals about the difficulty conceiving and events that offer a way to share your story are essential to build a community of strong women. Shyrell Hobson, organizer of the event aims to create a platform for women who suffer in silence due to their reproductive health issues. The intimate affair will take place at Houston's boutique wine bar, Ogun Art + Wine from 6-8pm on Thursday, August 30th.

The event will kickoff at 6:00pm with a social hour with complimentary snacks and wine while guests will have the opportunity to submit anonymous questions concerning fibroids and other women’s reproductive health issues. Panelists include licensed health professional Rashmi Kudesai, Kay Matthews of Shades of Blue and Resilience Coach, Shyrell Hobson. The featured topics for the evening include fibroids, resilience, pregnancy loss, treatment options and community resources.
