Did you know that black women are three to four times more likely to die during pregnancy than white women----regardless of education, income, prenatal care, or weight? In this episode I am chatting with Dr. Quantrilla Ard on the disparities in black maternal health. We discuss her motherhood story including her journey of becoming an Angel mom. She also shares tips on how we can begin advocating for our own health and why those of us who can choose must advocate for those who cannot.
