Meet Christina Tanner, Certified Nurse Midwife and Women’s Health Professional


Christina Tanner in Chiang Mai, Thailand, the week before our interview

This week on the podcast, we’re celebrating V-day – and we don’t mean the kind with fat cupids and chocolate. We mean vaginas and all the responsibilities that go with taking care of one – especially while traveling. We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again: Love yourself – and your lady bits – first!

We were fortunate to interview Christina Tanner, a midwife and world traveler, about how to stay healthy on the road. Christina has been a certified nurse midwife for 15 years. She works in Chicago’s Lawndale/Little Village neighborhoods for Esperanza Health Centers, a federally qualified health center (FQHC) that provides high-quality multi-specialty health care to members of the community regardless of insurance status. She is also currently in the process of starting a not-for-profit organzation, Rise Up Wellness, to provide free yoga classes and healing arts to underserved Chicago communities.

Christina is also a board member of Chicago NOW, an organization dedicated to making legal, political, social and economic change in our society in order to achieve their goal, which is to eliminate sexism and end all oppression. (If you’d like to donate to Chicago NOW, click here.)
