Episode Info:

There are some startling statistics when it comes to maternal morbidity and mortality in the United States, especially if you’re a black woman.

We’re one of the richest countries in the world, and yet the rates of maternal morbidity and mortality are increasing, rather than decreasing. Pretty shocking, isn’t it?

You might be asking yourself what I mean when I say maternal morbidity and mortality. And if so, you’re not alone. A lot of pregnant and postpartum mamas don’t fully understand those terms either.

But you’re in luck, because on this episode of the All About Pregnancy & Birth podcast, not only do I share with you what those words mean, and the specifics behind the statistics, but I also give you things you can do to stay safe and alive during both your pregnancy and postpartum periods.

This is a true public health crisis. Each and every pregnant and postpartum mama needs to catch this episode.

If you still have questions after listening in to this episode, I would love for you to check out my website. There are so many resources for you there! You can access that by clicking here.
