Maternal Mortality Rate

I am sure you have heard about the maternal mortality rate in America. Georgia leads the nation in maternal deaths. Guess which county leads the State of Florida in Maternal Mortality rates? Did you know that black and brown women are 4x's more likely to die after giving birth? There is a coalition of black birthing professionals in Pinellas and Hillsborough County that are doing something to address this problem.  The mission is to let the community of new moms know that we are here for them (I'm a Doula too!) Scientific evidence has proven that Doulas= Life for new moms.
