Why is it so dangerous to have Black babies in America?

April 11-17th is Black Maternal Health Week, and so we are replaying one of our favourite episodes from 2021 with guestRepresentative Lauren Underwoodof Illinois, a nurse and former senior advisor to President Obama.

We discuss how this country is failing Black mothers, and her incredible Momnibus Act,a suite of 12 bills designed to improve Black maternal health outcomes in America, where Black women are dying in or after childbirth at 3x-4x rates of white women.

In this incredible conversation, Rep. Underwood goes deep to help us understand the complexities of the problem, the crushing personal inspiration for her work, and what we can all do to help.
