Pregnancy Support and Resources


Pregnancy health is a topic getting attention because of a concerning statistic from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that found “black women in the United States are three times more likely to endure death related to pregnancy and childbirth than white women—and for black women over age 30, that risk is five times higher.”1
