What do these shocking numbers mean for expecting moms?
When a woman becomes pregnant, what do we automatically do? Offer up our congratulations, of course. Congrats! Is the standard go-to for any mother sharing the news of an upcoming addition to her family.
Unfortunately, pregnancy isn’t always just about congratulations and baby booties and diaper cakes. Pregnancy, for a lot of women, is a time of serious medical complications, fears, and lingering hurt after losses. Pregnancy, for a lot of women,can be a scary time. It wouldn’t cross our minds to offer anything up than goodwill and while that’s important, of course, a new report may just make us think twice about only focusing on the happy parts of pregnancy.
We often believe the U.S is the standard in healthcare but this new report says we could be doing a LOT MORE to stop pregnant women from dying.
