I am passionate about the environment in my work and personal life. I know it's not too late yet so let's do what we can.

I have spent the last 2 years focusing on litigation having to do with a broad range of environmental concerns, such as air and water quality, climate change and land use, amongst others

Racial bias in medicine makes Black women especially vulnerable during pregnancy. Doulas are trained to treat women from all backgrounds with care and give them support when they need it most. (via NowThis Her)

They just omit the fact that black women have higher percentages of diabetes, obesity and hypertension and go straight to racism?

What does race has to do with this? Always trying to dividing the races with lies. Stop the slavery crap. It’s over. You’ve never lived through it. #VictimMentalityIsCancer

So why is it 12x higher for Black Women? She didnt even address the underlying problem. All this lady is doing is advocating for Doulas...

From our findings with a documentary series we're producing: BIRTH vs BLACK - is that the root stems from issues we socially turn away from (i.e., issues surrounding Black America).

The only ones that don't get the same in hospitals are the ones with no insurance and no importance and color has very little to do with it.......if you're not well know or connected then your at the bottom of the latter white, black, latino what ever.

Anybody that finds this article funny is sad. It has already been proven in countless studies that women, and black women in general, are treated less effectively by doctors. If they wouldn't listen to Serena Williams when she was in labor what makes you think they would listen to the lowly woman down the street.

I thought planned parenthood was childcare for black women? According to its creator at least.

A large problem with our current healthcare system is that most studies creating the foundations of our current treatments are based on white men. those that are not eg childbirth for the purpose of this video are based on white women, which ignores the fundamental biological differences contributing to the avoidable deaths - so although racial bias plays a role, it's fundamental to include individuals of all ethnicities in the basic information we use in daily healthcare and stop relying on the previous information solely.

In the medical community more black women are neglected during childbirth and pregnancy to their counterparts or not carefully as carefully looked at simply because they’re black. Statistically, doctors are less likely to carefully treat black woman because of the view they’re being dramatic, they can handle the pain better than their counterparts or just underlying Ignorance that has yet to be properly addressed.
