All women and birthing people have the RIGHT to safe, supported, empowered, and beautiful birth experiences.There is a Black maternal health crisis in our country right now. Black women die at 3-4 times the rate of white women during childbirth and 12x the rate of white women in NYC. Black babies are twice as likely not to reach their 1st birthday. These tragic statistics are just the tip of the iceberg. There are also significant racial disparities in breastfeeding. Rates for exclusive breastfeeding at age 3 months were 36% among black infants and 53% among white infants. (Source: CDC)
