mothers and healthy babies. and that is why today on behalf of our administration, i am issuing a nationwide. call to action to both the public and the private sector. from the white house yesterday, vice president kamala harris marked the first ever maternal health day of action. the u. s has the highest maternal death rate of all developed countries. the numbers are even worse for black and native american women here in the bay area. several clinical programs have been designed to provide perry natal care for women of color to help combat those statistics. in this voices for change segment. our greg lee spoke with dr andrea jackson, who helps lead the embrace program for black mothers at ucsf. the embrace program has helped a lot of people. can you explain the services that you
6:46 pm
offer and perhaps some insight into some of those families? you've managed to help? yeah um , so embrace was started in 2018 embrace is a little bit different from traditional group . i'm sorry. traditional prenatal care. rotational personal care. you come in. you see your your doctor or your midwife one on one. or maybe about 15 20 minutes, and that's basically it and you see them up until you deliver and then six weeks, postpartum. with embrace where actually we do. group prenatal care. so you were grouped with other, um pregnant people who have similar due dates as you up to about 10 with an embrace. we do race can coordinate care, so everybody in the group identifies all the pregnant people as african american as black. including all the providers as well, too. and instead of just having, uh you know, 15 20 minutes visit with your provider. you have up to two hours with your provider. um
6:47 pm
and our topics range from everything from, um, describing the normal labor process and press feeding, but you know, with embrace where we really get into is that we talk about all those social determinants of health. that they discussed today as well to that contribute to the outcomes that we see with our black patients. we have talked a lot during the pandemic about the health inequities for black women that have been magnified and exacerbated by the pandemic. particularly maternal health. how critical is that peace and how disproportionate are those numbers? oh yeah. so you know, in the in the united states, black women are 3 to 4 times more likely to pass away during their, um when they're either pregnant and it's also extends all the way out into one year post partner. i think a lot of people don't recognize this is that when we talk about
6:48 pm
maternal health care, we're not just talking about. the period when the person is pregnant, but also for that year. postpartum as well. so this has been a critical issue for the black community for decades. unfortunately and then, of course, the pandemic just heightened. that and made it made it even more worse. we've seen a number of other healthcare agencies in the bay area adopted programs for this very issue for women of color for maternal health. how encouraging is that and for other areas around the nation that are considering doing this ? what would be your encouragement number one? i would say, just do it. i think that there is a lot of hesitation when it comes to providing very intentional care and focus and compassion to black people, which is, i think really ashamed. and so i would just say, like, push past that and really, you know, go with your gut, you know that this is needed. the second thing is that there are you know what we're
6:49 pm
doing is exciting and i think innovative, but it's not new. i was just really encourage them just to go with the guard. go with their heart. listen to the patients. and just do it. and for more voices for change content you can head to our website ktvu .com. just search for voices for change. already looking at the daytime highs from today. not all that warm. were they temperatures tomorrow will be about the same sprinkles possible again tonight and maybe a little bit in the morning, but light light stuff. there is theh traffic moving on it. we've got that atmospheric wherever you can see, it's stretching from the hawaiian islands. if you look far, far out to the west, you can see it's stretching all the way from down here and coming up over the horn. and it's going to work its way into the bay area as we go into the main atmospheric moisture on sunday and monday, right now we're getting some of it for sure. as it comes in tonight, and tomorrow we get that slight
