Black women in California are dying during childbirth at a rate that outpaces women of other racial and ethnic groups.
Senator Holly J. Mitchell has made it her mission to change this by working to reduce pregnancy-related preventable deaths and associated health disparities by addressing implicit bias among perinatal health providers.
Last week, she successfully stewarded the Dignity in Pregnancy and Childbirth Act, Senate Bill 464, from the Senate to the Assembly by a unanimous, 37-0 vote.
