Maternal Healthcare in the United States

This project examines how structural factors—including racism, sexism and discrimination—impact patients’ experiences on the ground. Sobering reports of increasing rates of maternal trauma and the disparate experiences among women of color have renewed concerns surrounding maternal health care. I am especially interested in analyzing the role that power dynamics and discrimination along the lines of race, language, ethnicity, gender, sexuality and marital status play in shaping the health care experiences of pregnant people across the nation. I am currently conducting interviews with women/birthing people and maternal health providers (including OBs, midwives, doulas, etc.) regarding their experiences with the maternal healthcare system in the US.
