Racial disparities for birthing moms in New York

July 6th, 2020

While covering the way the pandemic hit communities around the country and around the world, I interviewed a New York based doula and an expecting mom who took refuge in New Jersey to get a sense of the challenges of raising children in the close quarters of what was the epicenter of the pandemic and what was at stake for expecting mothers while also looking at the racial disparities. I interviewed these women, edited the story and produced the piece as part of the April 11, 2020 Newscast. The piece and the entire newscast that I edited and produced from home can be found in the 6pm weekend evening news section of the KPFA.org archives for April 11, 2020.
