The United States is the only industrialized country where the rates of maternal deaths have increased, instead of decreased. And “near deaths” are on the rise: 60,000 a year across the country, especially among black women. Serena Williams and Beyonce both recently spoke about their traumatic birth experiences, which shows that this issue is plaguing black women of all backgrounds. Erin Moriarty of 48 Hours investigates this issue.

4 thoughts on “Why Are Mothers In America Dying During Childbirth?

  1. Mothers back in day was strong mothers, having seven, eight and nine children, hardly kill none of them.
    Now these today’s mothers on vegan diet, don’t eat meat, eating salads, and fruits,depriving the young unborn with no nutrients.
    I know I’m going to get rebuttals from the me too movement but it’s the truth.
    Our grandparents, mothers, had no problems on giving birth, but the mother of today is living any and every kind of life,

  2. So sad to hear this occurring in the 21st Century.
    You would expect this to be happening back in the day when medicine was not as advanced as it is today and only mid-wives were involved.

    No WOMAN should be dying during childbirth.

    All WOMEN should have EQUAL ACCESS to quality pre-natal care and the utmost attention paid to them by nurses/doctors in hospitals.

    Black women r not as skrong/strong as they think. Having a baby pulls from your body. So your husband is who you lean on. Who u count on.. Black WOMEN are paying the price but black WOMEN won’t admit it.
