Black Maternal Health

In the United States, non-Hispanic Black women are three to four times more likely to die from pregnancy-related causes than white women. That’s one of the highest maternal mortality rates among industrialized nations. At The Bump, we believe it’s our collective responsibility to champion Black maternal health and wellness—which is why we’re partnering with the National Medical Association to keep you informed, supported and empowered throughout your pregnancy and parenting journey.
