Let's Talk New Mexico 5/3 8a: Having a baby is a dangerous prospect for many women in New Mexico. Many hospitals aren’t prepared to deal with life-threatening complications related to pregnancy and childbirth, and not all women have access to quality prenatal care. Women of color are especially at risk. How can we ensure that all new and expectant mothers in our state get the care they need?

Are you pregnant or a new mom? How was your experience with prenatal and postpartum care? Was your pregnancy or childbirth affected by medical complications, lack of health insurance, or racial bias? We want to hear from you. Email letstalk@kunm.org or call in live during the show.
