#repost @everymomcounts #everymothercounts #maternalhealth #healthcare #womenshealth ・・・ the differences in maternal outcomes based on race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status and indigenous status are stark, and are among the most extreme in any area of health in the united states. chronic stress alone related to racism and social inequities can lead to a higher risk of pregnancy and childbirth complications. thanks to community-based organizations like commonsense childbirth, we know proven solutions can be offered to mothers and expanded into more communities. learn more by watching the full #givingbirthinamerica series today at cnn.com/mothers

I didn’t change my name until i was pregnant with my first child. i had this fear that something would/could go wrong after he was born and we would get separated in the hospital. i thought if we had the same last name it would be easier to reunite us. little did i know this would be one of the only practical thoughts of newborn motherhood that i had during my pregnancy. i had no reason to believe that these hospital tags would become my albatross. needless to say, this was not the snapshot i was expecting six hours after giving birth. this broken mother and her sweet little chicken. all i knew in that exhausted, scared, confused moment was that the tags matched. we were together. we had each other and that was clearly going to have to be enough. #newborn #postpartum #newmom #hospital #birth #moms #motherhood #newbornmom #mommamosaic #breakthestigma #maternalhealth #maternity #truth #speakup #reallife #reality #advocate #birthtrauma #breakthesilence

comment 7 star 55 2 weeks ago

Women need consistent access to a healthcare provider throughout their lifetime for the best chances of a healthy pregnancy and safe birth. when women are unable to access affordable health insurance or a regular provider, they are more likely to enter into pregnancy with common chronic conditions - which contribute to higher risk pregnancies and births. we can ensure more women have a better chance to thrive as mothers. learn more at link in bio, or watch our film at cnn.com/mothers. #givingbirthinamerica

comment 0 star 393 2 weeks ago

America’s healthcare system is the most complicated and expensive in the world – leaving millions uninsured and without the care they need. uninsured women are more likely to forego preventive care, which is critical for a healthy pregnancy and birth. learn more by watching our film at link in bio, and follow along with #givingbirthinamerica.

Spent the past week with @everymomcounts working on the #givingbirthinamerica project. it was so fascinating and eye-opening working with the american healthcare system-one that’s so different from those that i usually work in, yet so inadequate and underserving of the population. #healthcare #america #usa #california #everymothercounts

"access to education, information, choice and evidence based health care is a human and woman's right." #repost @heybales 💪🏼 #bethechange ・・・ recently watched @everymomcounts @clancymccarty short film series' #givingbirthinamerica and learned that the us is the only industrialized country with a rising maternal mortality rate! this is due to chronic illness (more than half of us women are obese), lack of insurance (there are 17 million uninsured women ages 19-64), and over medicalization (our cesarean rate is 3x higher than what is deemed beneficial by the @who for both mothers and babies). also, due to socio-economic inequality, women of color are 4x as likely to die from pregnancy related complications and latina women 2x at greater risk. access to education, information, choice and evidence based health care is a human and woman's right. the orange rose is a symbol of maternal health. pass the #orangerose to make pregnancy and childbirth safer for every mother, every where.

Make our planet great again. filming the aftermath of #batonrougeflood last year, which left thousands homeless #denhamspringshighschool #louisiana #givingbirthinamerica #makeourplanetgreatagain #nodapl #mniwiconi #waterislife #parisclimateagreement climate change connection a rapid attribution study that was published within one month after the event indicates an anthropogenic climate warming role in the increased probability of the return time of a similar extreme event happening in the future. a follow-on peer-reviewed paper 309620219_synoptic_and_quantitative_attributions_of_the_extreme_precipitation_leading_to_the_august_2016_louisiana_flood indicates that the catastrophic flood in louisiana was a result of intense precipitation produced by a slow-moving tropical low pressure system interacting with an eastward-traveling baroclinic trough to the north. while tropical-midlatitude interactions of this nature are rare, they are not unprecedented. analyses presented point towards the tendency for more and perhaps stronger upper level troughs propagating out of the western u.s. in summer; these then have an increasing potential to cross paths with low pressure systems that form around the gulf coast. combined with the projected increase in precipitable water, resulting precipitation magnitude would increase. large-ensemble modeling indicates that the prospect of future tropical-midlatitude interactions is a scenario that louisiana will face in the future. regional simulations suggest that the climate warming since 1985 may have increased the event precipitation (11-14 august 2016)

All done!! friedman's curve was based on a small, flawed study done in 1955 that is still being used by many obstetricians today to define a "normal" length and pace of labor. #failuretoprogress #obstetrics #maternalhealth #givingbirthinamerica #studioshot #friedmanscurve #feministart
