Labor And Delivery Nurses Fired After Sharing ‘Icks’ About Maternity Patients On TikTok

Stories such as the former Emory University Hospital Midtown labor and delivery nurses’ lack of care are alarming, as childbirth can put women in grave danger, especially Black women.

As previously shared by AfroTech in 2020, studies revealed that Black women are 2.5 times more likely to die during childbirth than white women due to racism and prejudice. Black maternal patients are often ignored, neglected, and disrespected, which puts both the lives of their babies and themselves at stake if or when health complications arise.
