Santa Clara County raises awareness about 'alarming' rate of Black women dying in childbirth

Santa Clara Valley Healthcare says they wanted this event to celebrate Black motherhood but also focus on the alarming rate of Black women who are dying during childbirth. "Black women are three to four more times as likely to die in childbirth. Black women in their 20s, with promise, with hope, stand before you already exhausted," said Leilani Jones, Santa Clara Valley Healthcare.
