Reproductive health is an integral aspect of our lives, but for many of us in the South Asian community, it’s a topic that is often whispered about in secret or not spoken about at all. Here at Shakti Collaborative, we aim to open up the conversation about reproductive health in an effort to promote safe, healthy and joyful lives in our community. That’s why we’re thrilled to introduce our “Reproductive Empowerment” series in partnership with Dr. Rashmi Kudesia, M.D., a Board Certified physician focused on reproductive endocrinology and infertility. In this series, you’ll hear from Dr. Kudesia on tips and strategies to facilitate conversations on this topic, common reproductive health issues among South Asian women, and resources you can access along your journey.
