Maternal Mortality in Texas

Maternal Mortality poster design commissioned this design for use in the cover of the TCMS Journal (Travis County Medical Journal) Sept./Oct. 2021 Issue.

Maternal Mortality Rate in the US, and specifically in Texas, where it as the highest of most developing countries right now. Poor african american women, and Latino/Hispanic women are dying at the highest rates. There are fewer facilities here in Texas. Often the baby has healthcare coverage, but the women cannot get the coverage to see a doctor after having a baby.
