AUTHOR:Fred MogulSOURCE:WNYC News Radio

Today WNYC News radio broadcast the findings of the recent report on maternal health released by the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. Yesterday, Life for Mothers (LfM) discussed the results of both reports revealing that women in NYC are suffering complications from pregnancy and childbirth at significantly higher rates than the rest of the country. LfM recognizes that the causes for these increased rates are multifactorial and structurally based. Today's news release should be an immediate wake-up call to redouble our efforts to reverse the disturbing trend.
