In this episode I’m revisiting the important topic of maternal morbidity and mortality and how you can keep yourself safe. Pregnancy related morbidity (health related conditions that have a negative effect on the woman’s well-being) and pregnancy related mortality (death related to pregnancy) are on the rise in The US. This is truly a public health crisis, especially for black women.
