Changing the Maternal Health Narrative for Women of Color
Maternal health is a foundation of a healthy, productive society. And, yet, with attacks on reproductive health at an all-time high, women are struggling more than ever. This is especially true for black mothers, whose maternal health outcomes are significantly worse than for their white counterparts. In a glimmer of hope, communities are seeing a rise in services and organizations aimed at supporting these mothers. By offering prenatal and postnatal services, their main missions are to empower black mothers and to support, care for, and affirm those mothers, babies, and families throughout their maternal journey.
