The Road to Black Birth Justice

Report  •  May 24, 2022


It’s a fact that Black women and birthing people experience infant and maternal mortality, maternal morbidity, and preterm birth at higher rates than most other groups in the United States.

This report summarizes the findings of a multipart project that the UCSF California Preterm Birth Initiative conducted, in partnership with the First 5 Center for Children’s Policy, to understand the challenges and opportunities to improve the birth outcomes and experiences of Black people and their families in California.
