Mamaroneck Moms Rally for Safe Birth

improving birth rally

A group of Mamaroneck Moms joined a 50-state group of rallies by ImprovingBirth.org on Labor Day to end what they call an American “maternity crisis.” the local rally was at Harbor Island.

The United States ranks highest in the cost and 45th in safety for birth procedures, supporters say.

Supporters say New York State has a C-section rate of 34.7%,  significantly higher  than the 15% suggested by the World Health Organization as a highest recommended rate.
And, though the U.S. has the highest maternity care costs in the world, it ranks 45th in maternal safety, data from the  United Nations, which lists our nation?s maternal death rate as tied
with that of Iran and Hungary.
