In the U.S., the CDC reported that Black women experience maternal mortality two to three times higher than that of white women. The estimated national maternal mortality rate in the United States is about 17 per 100,000 live births––but it is about 43 per 100,000 live births for Black women. In this week's podcast, Maternal Health and the Black Woman: Myths, Facts and Advocacy, Dr. Nakeitra Burse gets straight to the facts. Dr. Burse, the owner and principal strategist for Six Dimensions, LLC and executive produce of Laboring With Hope, a short documentary that addresses that national maternal mortality crisis among Black women, joins host Merc B to talk about why Black women are more likely to die during childbirth than any other race.
