Did you know that in 2017 mothers of color and their babies suffer the highest rates of maternal & Infant morbidity and mortality? That means that mothers and babies of color are dying at 3-12 x the rate of white women- before, during and after birth. All research on this point to systemic racism, lack of midwifery care options AND lack of midwives & doulas of color as the causes for these shocking disparities.
