Childbirth and reproductive health in America: Where we are and why we're here
Another dispatch from SXSW and a big, important conversation this week.
We’re talking maternal health care and the worsening dangers of childbirth in the U.S. We’re also talking abortion and comprehensive sex education as part of the spectrum of reproductive health care and why so many American women deliver their babies via c-section. Paid family leave makes an appearance too.
Join us as we sit down with three passionate experts and advocates on International Women’s Day, who were in Austin to present a session called Hysteria No More: Data, Doctors, and Women’s Health:
Dr. Chitra Akileswaran, Co-Founder of Cleo and lecturer at Harvard Medical School
Dr. Rashmi Kudesia, reproductive endocrinology and infertility specialist at CCRM Fertility Houston
Dr. Pooja Mehta, Director of Maternal and Women's Health Policy at the LSU Center Consortium for Health Transformation
