Event description

Description

What is the crisis? Key issues that contribute to worsening health of moms and babies include: a) surge in the rate of prematurity not seen in the last 8 years, b) health inequity and disparity with African American and other marginalized populations, c) lack of early, universal access to care, d) rising maternal mortality worse than any other developed nation, e) increasing evidence of a maternity care provider workforce shortage with no plan to reverse, e) an epidemic of maternal workplace stress and depression before, during and after pregnancy, and, f) lack of addressing mothers and fathers desire and need for paid parental leave.
