Rates of maternal mortality in Washington, D.C. are, by some accounts, the worst in the country. And the closing of two obstetrics wards east of the Anacostia River have made accessing quality care before and after pregnancy even harder for some women most impacted by this crisis. Today we discuss how maternal mortality got so bad in Washington, the plan to create a Maternal Mortality Review Committee and what other jurisdictions are doing. Maryland, for instance, recently launched a program to do home visits for expectant and new mothers and their children.
