Joyce sees a striking difference between how her white friends are treated in healthcare, compared to herself and her Black friends. This became more apparent during her first pregnancy, where she and her child suffered serious complications. Becoming her own best advocate, Joyce was determined that her second and third pregnancies would not be the same. Edit credit: Mike Addis
