Amazing work from ProPublica continues - voices of women who nearly died due to pregnancy

December 27, 2017

 

As part of their ongoing investigation into the maternal health crisis in the US called "Lost Mothers", ProPublica posted a thought-provoking article "If you hemorrhage, don't clean up: Advice from Mothers Who Almost Died." They received stories from 3100 women after their initial article in this series was published.

 

These stories further demonstrate the lack of priority we place on the health of women during and after childbirth. Highly recommended read for all women and those who love them!
