Listen Now

Inequities in maternal health care are taking a big toll on women of color – doctors say it’s not uncommon for them to hear a Black pregnant person say they’re scared to die. Experts say it’s no easy fix: They say racism and implicit bias exist. This week, we have a real talk about maternal health for women of color, the resources available, and the contributing factors to Colorado’s rising maternal death rate.
