Info from the website Birth is a Dream: The American Dream

"The United States has the highest maternal mortality rate of any industrialized country in the world... And while the vast majority of countries have reduced their maternal mortality ratios, for the past 25 years the numbers of women lost during pregnancy, birth or postpartum have increased dramatically in the US.

African-American women in the US are at especially high risk for maternal mortality; they are nearly 4 times more likely to die of pregnancy-related complications compared to European Americans.

Black women are by far the largest demographic to suffer these outcomes, it has been this way for decades and yet they are seldom able to make their voices heard.

It's time for change.

Through the documentary “the AMERICAN dream” the women tell their own stories: they know what is wrong, they share their hopes, they share their fears, and they share about their American dream, related to maternal health in the US.

Perhaps it is time to listen."
