The United States has one of the worst maternal health records in the developed world

Both bills (S 1112 / HR 1318) support States in their work to save and sustain the health of mothers during pregnancy, childbirth, and in the postpartum period.  Every year in the U.S., 700 to 900 women die from pregnancy or childbirth-related causes, and some 65,000 nearly die —the worst record in the developed world. These bills aim to identify solutions to improve healthcare and health outcomes for mothers.

Script:  I’m calling […] to ask them to support [S 1112 / HR 1318].  It’s way past time for the United States to address our persistently high maternal mortality rates.
