Healthy Birth Day Inc. to host webinar on Black maternal health solutions


As part of Black Maternal Health Week, Healthy Birth Day Inc. will be hosting a webinar on Black maternal mortality and morbidity on April 13. Healthy Birth Day board member and Georgia-based infant health care executive Rose Horton will deliver a keynote address. A panel of maternal health experts will also explore the data in birth outcomes, share lived experiences and discuss evidence-based solutions to improve maternal health. In 2021, the U.S. maternal mortality rate was 32.9 per 100,000 births, up from 20.1 in 2019. The rate among Black birthing parents was nearly three times the rate among white counterparts in 2021, according to new government data. The webinar is free and open to the public, and is geared toward Black expectant parents and those who provide them with care throughout the pregnancy. Registration information is at this link.
