Establishing Birth Equity through Advocacy in a Hospital Setting

Presented by Mallesha Malcolm, CNM, WHNP-BC, MPH, RN, C-EFM, LCCE

This webinar will define and identify the role of birth equity, with a focus on the importance of advocacy during pregnancy and birth in a hospital setting. This presentation will shed light on how women of color are often not advocated for, at times dismissed and devalued, in comparison to their counterparts while birthing in a hospital. We will highlight strategies to advocate for all patients through the perinatal period as a solution to establish and maintain birth equity across the nation.
