Maternal Health

The U.S. maternal mortality rate is worse today than it was 25 years ago — particularly among Black women, who are three to four times more likely to die from pregnancy-related complications than white women.

CHCS works with Medicaid stakeholders to improve maternal outcomes through critical policy and program changes.
