Black women are twice as likely to suffer from infertility but are half as likely to access care than white women—even considering socioeconomic status. But it’s not only fertility. Maternal mortality is higher for women of color. Black, American Indian, and Alaska Native women are two to three times more likely to die from pregnancy-related causes than white women. Join Progyny as we discuss fertility and maternal health in the black community with Dr. Genevieve Neal-Perry, MD, PhD, Reproductive Endocrinologist and Chair, UNC School of Medicine Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Tia Jackson-Bey, MD, MPH, Reproductive Endocrinologist, RMA of New York and Icahn School of Medicine at Mt Sinai, and Renita White, MD, OBGYN at Georgia Obstetrics & Gynecology.
