Did you know that black and Indigenous birthing people in the U.S. have a higher chance of dying in childbirth than a U.S. soldier has of dying in combat. Yeah. And that is only ONE of the terrifying statistics we learned on today’s show. Maria sat down with Callie Chamberlain, birthing doula and Optum Social Responsibility program leader, to talk about the U.S. maternal health crisis. Callie educated us on the inequality that many minority populations face from the medical system, and also shares how we all can help.
This is a really important episode and we hope it was informative and helpful. Please share with anyone you think would benefit.
