RT @nprmontagne: Painful to hear, but important series by @NPRJoeShapiro and NPR Investigations about high level of abuse of those… https://t.co/uaUWewkclK
@ProPublica @NPR @serenawilliams And in case you're wondering, women in the US die from childbirth complications more than any other developed country. Black mothers in the U.S. die at 3 to 4 times the rate of white mothers, one of the widest of all racial disparities in women's health.  https://www.npr.org/2017/12/07/568948782/black-mothers-keep-dying-after-giving-birth-shalon-irvings-story-explains-why

@ProPublica @NPR In the year working on this project @NPR heard from thousands of women who nearly died giving birth. The constant in all of their stories is women know their own bodies best. Take it from @serenawilliams if not from us: Speak up. If you think something is wrong, don't ignore it.
ICYMI, this @ProPublica thread on @NPR's and ProPublica's investigation into why so many US mothers die in childbirth is 💯. Black mothers are especially vulnerable. That doesn't mean poor black mothers, it means everyone, INCLUDING SERENA WILLIAMS.  https://twitter.com/propublica/status/951219421099503621
