The CDC ranks Arkansas as the 3rd highest maternal mortality rate in the United States with a rate of 35 per 100,000 live births as compared to the national average of 20.1
In Arkansas, Black women die from maternal mortality at a rate of 71 per 100,000 live births as compared to a rate of 27.8 for non-hispanic white women.
60% of ALL maternal deaths are preventable. Too few women have access to quality and respectable care and advocacy.
We are working to change that!
