Jordan is a rising senior at Johns Hopkins University studying Public Health with an interest in maternal health and healthcare access, as well as mental health of marginalized people. Through a previous internship with Baltimore’s MOMCares, she developed a keen interest in the birthing process beyond labor and delivery, and to learn more about accessibility to healthcare resources for disadvantaged birthers specifically, but also about alternative processes. Jordan worked on a mini-series for Septembers NICU Awareness month where she interviewed mothers of NICU babies about their experience; mainly the lack of proper healthcare resources presented to them. Because of this experience, she is interested in learning more about limited healthcare resources, as well as the stigma surrounding motherhood and its complications. Upon hearing a presentation from an abortion doula, she was convinced that learning about abortion care and access were her next steps. This summer Jordan will be interning in a new project launched this spring, the Maryland Abortion Access Alliance, and will also be a communications and social media intern at B’More Perinatal Behavioral Health Network. Through both of these internships, she hopes to continue to develop a holistic understanding of healthcare and pregnancy, as well as the systemic barriers that may lead to negative maternal health effects or the choice of abortion.
