“The challenges faced by black mothers are complicated, and will take years to fully address. But the prospect of motherhood should be a source of joy for black women, as it is for others, without the fear that their race will threaten their life.”

There has been many articles in the new recently concerning the disparities in maternal mortality for black women.  It is important that we as care providers recognize the statistics and do our due diligence to improve the preventable.

Happy 45th Anniversary Roe v. Wade

Today is such an important day in the history of reproductive rights. On January 22nd, 1973, the Supreme Court ruled in a 7-2 majority to legalize abortion. This historic case was built over the course of three years, and to this day, it is an important reminder of all the work that has been done and the work that still needs to be done to maintain and improve access to abortion care. In modern times, it’s easy to forget just how difficult things were only 45 years ago. Many people died attempting to self abort or due to lack of access to a safe abortion.
