Poor, Black and Pregnant Flip the Script

    • Education

Our guest is Khiara Bridges, JD, PhD, professor of law and anthropology at Boston university, and reproductive rights expert. We discuss the experience of low-income, pregnant Black women in NYC as they seek prenatal care -- their experience with the healthcare system, navigating imposed rules and restrictions as recipients of public insurance. We also discuss maternal mortality disparities in the broader context of race and racism in the U.S., and her future projects.
