March of Dimes Calls for #BlanketChange

THE MOST DANGEROUS DEVELOPED NATION TO GIVE BIRTH IN?
UNFORTUNATELY, IT’S AMERICA

The maternal death rate in America has doubled in just twenty five years, and it’s only getting worse. More than 700 moms died due to pregnancy-related causes this year alone, making the United States the most dangerous developed nation to have a newborn baby. Women of color are most at risk of facing life-threatening complications, and black women are three times as likely as white women to die from pregnancy-related causes. Working together for #BlanketChange, we can give all new moms a better chance to be there for their babies.
