In this episode of Well Said, we’re talking about something that many may think of more as ancient history than contemporary health – the dangers of pregnancy and childbirth. Sadly, deaths related to child delivery still occur and happen at higher rates in the United States than in most other countries in the developed world. Our guests will help us understand just how risky pregnancy and childbirth are today, and why. 

Joining us are:

Martine Hackett, PhD, associate professor in the Master of Public Health and B.S. in Community Health programs in Hofstra University’s School of Health Professions and Human Services, and Rev. Dr. Nellie Taylor-Walthrust, ThD, CASAC, director of the Leeds Place – Serving Young People, a division of the North Shore Child & Family Guidance Center on Long Island.
