Join the Working Women’s Network and Yale African American Affinity Group for a conversation with Monique Rainford about about her book Pregnant While Black: Advancing Justice for Maternal Health in America. Register by Friday, September 15th for your chance to win a free copy of the book!
Pregnant While Black is a hopeful exploration of the issues pregnant Black women face in America. Within these pages, Dr. Rainford draws on over twenty years of experience working in obstetrics and gynecology to offer a primer on Black pregnancies and how to better care for them. She shares the successes and testimonies of Black women who have struggled during pregnancy and childbirth, anchoring the stories of these women with carefully researched facts. Despite medical advances over the last twenty years, for Black women, the overwhelming dangers of carrying and delivering children remain and it only seems to be getting worse.
This event will take place both in person at the Sterling Memorial Library Lecture Hall, 120 High Street, and via Zoom.
