63 | Conquering the Fear of Birth - Jessica Johnson

Play
Read more

Jessica shared her empowering VBAC birth experience after having a surgical twin birth. She and her husband decided to enlist the support of a doula for the third pregnancy. They reached out to a local organization, ROOTT, to hire a Black Perinatal Support Doula - who would be knowledgeable about the unique needs of Black women and families in birthing spaces and help her navigate her desire to have a VBAC. She eventually switched her doctor after having two challenging deliveries with her. After some needed introspection and reviewing how the twin pregnancy went, they knew it was the best decision. They felt much more comfortable, and the pregnancy was smoother once they had the right birth team in place. Their doula helped them go back and better understand how things shifted and how they could make this birth different. She also supported her in understanding her nutritional needs better to reduce preterm birth, decrease the chances of hemorrhaging, and later naturally induce her labor once she was term.

The third delivery was different in that Jessica was informed of all of her options and could choose what felt right for her at the time. Her doula met her at home as her labor progressed and helped her with positional changes to help the baby come down. After laboring through her typical day as long as she could, she finally arrived at the hospital and was 7cm (active labor). The doctor arrived when her baby was crowning and requested that she turn around to deliver her baby. She refused and continued to push her baby out in an upright position on her bed; he adjusted to her desire. Jessica had accomplished her VBAC without an epidural with the support of her birth team! After all of her birthing experiences, Jessica deemed herself a "Birthing Expert," and we whole-heartedly agree.

Jessica was fully supported by her husband, family, OB/GYN, and her doula. She recommends women choose and hire a doula to help them make informed decisions about their bodies and delivery options. Jessica encourages women to build a team of people who look like you and understand your body and lived experiences. Trust yourself.

Interview with Reggie Bryant and Jessica Johnson, Jobs in NYC

Play
Read more

More than 26 million people in the United States have now filed unemployment in the five weeks since the coronavirus outbreak began forcing millions of businesses to close their doors. The unemployment rate is pushing toward 15 percent. This pandemic could plunge New York City into the worst economic crisis since the 1970s, costing the city 475,000 jobs and nearly $10 billion in revenue. But with all these job losses there are still some businesses that are hiring and new jobs are being created. But how do you get these jobs?  

Today, I am speaking with Jessica Johnson and Reggie Bryant. Jessica currently works for the NYC Department of Corrections and Reggie for a workforce development company.  These two have never met but together are helping local New Yorkers find jobs via a Facebook group that Jessica started in 2011 called Jobs in NYC. The group has over 150,000 members. 

In the past five weeks, they have placed over sixty people in jobs throughout New York City while holding down their day jobs. We are all facing massive dislocations in our lives, and what Reggie and Jessica are doing is a bright light of hope in a dark time.  

Reggie Bryant: Born in Ellsworth Air Force Base, South Dakota, Reggie Bryant joined the Army right out of High School and served 7 years in-country and overseas, deployed to Germany and Iraq.  After being released from the Army, Reggie headed back to Iraq for 4 years working for Halliburton. 

For a new beginning, Reggie moved to New York in 2007 and began a career at Grant Associates, a woman-owned, privately held company as a security guard. At Grant Associates, one of the largest workforce development organizations in North America, Reggie worked his way up to corporate as a Strategic Operations Manager, where some of his responsibilities include, innovation, creative problem solving, training, and coaching.  

For more than three years, Reggie has been assisting Jessica with the Jobs in NYC Facebook group helping people all across the city find jobs in his free time.  You can read more about Reggie in IMPACT! Positive Change Magazine that he created back in 2013 to highlight those people doing good.  Scroll to page 36.  

Jessica Johnson: Born and raised in Bedford–Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn, New York, Jessica Johnson, holds a degree in criminology from John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York and is currently working as a Program Specialist for the NYC Department of Correction. 

In 2011, during the recession, Jessica founded the Facebook Group, Jobs in NYC. She was working for the city, which seemed to be the most secure job possible at the time and initially opened the group to let people know when certain jobs were opening within the city, and assist them with their resumés.

Then she started seeing new coffee shops and restaurants all over the Bedford–Stuyvesant have hiring signs but no applicants. Jessica began  posting images of the signs in the Facebook Group and encouraged her 100+ members to do the same.

Then out of nowhere, people from all over began joining the group and inquiring – so much so that Jessica had to close the group and place restrictions. The group has now grown to over 150k members and has helped thousands of its members find employment and mutual aid.

How do you feel about homeschooling? There is much debate as to if it’s good for kids regarding both their school education and their social activity. This is a delightful interview with my daughter-in law, Jessica Johnson, who chose to homeschool her daughters, especially for the early grades. I also homeschooled our three sons for three years when they were young and feel they were very well-adjusted as a result.

We will look at some of the joys as well as some of the challenges in homeschooling. Also, at some of the resources Jessica has found in today’s educational climate and some of her reasons for choosing this path. I will share what worked well in our situation some years ago, which is still applicable today. Whether you are listening as a parent with children still of school-age or as a grandparent, this show will pull back the curtain on some of the different aspects and realities of homeschooling, which is actually growing in popularity!
