Join us for a panel discussion about the challenge of improving maternal mortality among Black mothers.

Black mothers are 3-4 times more likely than white women to die due to pregnancy and birth-related complications. Doula, midwives and reproductive advocates are on the frontlines of the movement to directly address Black maternal mortality in the United States. Join us as we discuss how our panelists are working to address these issues through their work.
