Event description

Description

The Maternal Mortality Crisis is unacceptable in a developed society. The United States ranks last among all developed countries with a rising rather than declining Maternal Mortality Rate. Even worse, Black women die in and around childbirth at 3 times the rate of white women. We need to urgently address this crisis with Practical Solutions & Practical Prevention. This conference is for Birth Workers & Community Members who are concerned about this issue. We are excited to welcome the following:

Speaker: Jill Arnold, Patient/Consumer Advocate & Project Manager in the maternity care sector specializing in C-section rate reduction, data reporting & consumer engagement with maternity data, Executive Director of the non-profit Maternal Safety Foundation.

Speaker: Dr. Poppy Daniels, OB/GYN, Author, Founder & President of Quick Access Prenatal Clinic Woman to Woman Prenatal Care, advocating for changing the way prenatal care is currently conducted, advocate for midwifery-physician collaboration.

Keynote Speaker: Jennie Joseph, British-trained midwife, creator of the JJ WayTM, an evidence-based maternity medical home model, Executive Director of Commonsense Childbirth & Founder of the National Perinatal Task Force, a grassroots organization whose mission is elimination of racial disparities in maternal-child health.
