It’s Black Maternal Health Week April 11-17.

Serena Williams‘ brush with death in the days after giving birth turned a spotlight on the importance of maternal health, especially when it comes to Black women.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Black women are 3 to 4 times more likely than white women to die from pregnancy or childbirth-related causes. This alarming statistic is one reason why it’s critical to uplift Black mothers and give them the support they need.

To help raise awareness and contribute to a positive narrative about Black motherhood, we are offering up a gallery of some famous and non-famous Black expectant moms whose glow-ups are currently shining all over Instagram.
