P.S. Blossom is a podcast that connects the lived experiences of Black, Indigenous and other women of color to the innovations, policies, and narratives being created in the health and wellness market.

Prioritizing the needs, perspectives, and voices of historically marginalized people is critical to achieving Rhia Ventures’ vision of a world in which all women and other birthing people can thrive with full autonomy over their reproductive and maternal health. Hearing from partners, investors, and entrepreneurs of color in the reproductive health space allows us to address the disparity between the current health market and one that exists to serve these needs.
