Baby Dove’s Expecting Care Campaign Continues To Advocate For Black Birth Equity

by Black America Web

Black birth equity saves lives thanks to initiatives like Baby Dove’s Expecting Care campaign. Statistics show Black women are three to five times more likely to die from a pregnancy-related cause than White women.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, each year in the United States, hundreds of people die each year in the US during pregnancy or within a year of it. Most deaths are preventable by promptly addressing urgent signs and providing quality care.
