Women & Politics presents:

This week we share our platform with Kenda Sutton-El and the podcast she is launching: Today we air her third  podcast.


Kenda Sutton-El

Kenda’s greatest pleasure as a reproductive healthcare worker has been watching women become confident and excited about the birth and early parenting of their children. She firmly believes in the power of redirecting your fears and anxieties into finding new, empowering ways to experience birth and parenting.

Kenda is the Founding Director of Birth In Color RVA. Kenda holds a Bachelor’s in Health Science and is also a Doula Trainer, Diversity Equity Inclusion Consultant, Policy Analyst, CPR Instructor, Holistic Nutritionist, Lamaze Childbirth Educator, Certified Breastfeeding Specialist, Hypnobirthing Educator.

Kenda serves as the Chair of Virginia Doula Taskforce Chair, Chair of Greater Richmond Regional Maternal Child Health Taskforce, member of the Virginia Maternal and Data outcomes Taskforce, Pregnancy Services for Incarceration Workgroup.

In 2019, Kenda Sutton-EL helped establish “Black Maternal Health Week”  and also led the campaign for Doula Medicaid Reimbursement for the state of Virginia. Her passion for reproductive justice has led her to relentlessly pursue methods of improving maternal health for women of color. She firmly believes that until every woman is safe before, during, and after childbirth, we have not done our job as a society.
