7:33 am
heat. very interesting events surrounding the anniversary of columbine but as a start of tab we were talking about live in orange ride sharing apps and you know we see no murder you see rape you see your salt even in the last few weeks every city when you do the research you know a smorgasbord of numbers and statistics showing that it's not as safe as people might think while traveling and miller traveling by you know driving alone as a human being is is often unsafe however what you see is is a lot of women it's mostly women who are sold out it's mostly women who are raped in these situations is raja's these are seen as sort of weak and vulnerable and would like you said when you when you put alcohol in there. any kind of you know mind altering substance people would take offense because they have the advantage in that that thing now the issue that happened with in north carolina was. she got
7:34 am
into a car that she didn't it wasn't an over it wasn't a left it wasn't a ride sharing car it was just a car sitting there which is why i think a lot of people at home when you use ride sharing say it's a lot of you know a lot of the safety things they say always it tells you the license plate check the license plate ask for their name don't tell them your name don't say you're for tabitha you're here for tyrrell say what's your name check the license plate and say what's your name because every one of those apps that check it and don't let your friends go into getting into stuff or cabs like that you can this is what there's a lot of technology that you can share your pen with someone you know when somebody and let them know it may seem weird but these are the situations rico to watch out for yourself you've got to watch out for your friends because there are predators out there you see it you know they will i mean think about the scenario you're taught as you laid out you talk about it let's say just as the scenario i laid out earlier talk a bunch of people leaving a club you know something let nature and then you know everything's great little
7:35 am
tipsy you hanging out big crowd of people because usually the clubs you know they push everybody out the moment rafter last call right now it's a big big crowd of people it's easy for a predator to slip his car in there which is from what i understand pretty close to what happened to this poor woman in carolina and you don't know because how many people i've seen it how many people just jump in without a shadow about it without a doubt one to the wrong one i've done it you know where you jump in and then suddenly halfway to really wait no this isn't the right direction we're going to turn this around know your surroundings now we're going to where they're taking you because even though you know just you have to be aware of yourself because i think we get very loud into a sense of security because we have an app we have a phone you know there's people around in a car but that's that is where your seat you sort of bends and you have to be aware of and you know i think one that roger and companies are very well regulated for this state you know anybody who's going to be able to get one of these signs i
7:36 am
think you need more than that you need to have. better background checks you need to have a better accounting of people and actions and they're not great about answering but any writer is not super great about answering responses to complain though and you know it's interesting to me to do is that when you're talking about the bill that came forth from this poor woman it's ok they all the drivers have to carry a lighted sign and i'm going way well yeah that's a taxi cab you know is there is a certain point where lead the rules and regulations that we have in place for taxis eventually it's going to kind of lead in order for because a lot of those rules and regulations with taxes were put in place for what is a security for these so you could trust the car you're getting into and you know lifted all them came along and said hey you know man we're we're you know thrown out the old rules of taxis everyone's to share and it's a good economy if you get on the road i also wonder you have we have to look at forward as not only the liability of the company but the big liability of drivers what happens if two people get in your car you give them
7:37 am
a ride and one of them assaults the other one i mean there's all these questions about how they work who is responsible and in a very litigious society that we have it's going to be more complicated and there's a lot of alternatives that are sort of popping up i think that's important there's one coming out of boston called safer. a f r look them up because they're. sharing service that's focused on empowerment of women so it's all female drivers off of my writers and. i feel like things like that are really important there has to be this thing where you know if you go to a massage therapist you can ask for a male or female if i go to my doctor i can ask if i want to call doctor's office a gynecologist i'm ousted you would you like a male or female and the thing is you can't do that you don't have that option with her and lifts where some of these things like safer and boston these companies have that built and that's important i don't care i'm a customer i have money to spend for and over i want it to be stay exactly and look
7:38 am
and you know we also got to also pay attention to this isn't just a problem for ride sharing because now that we have the economy we're you know the thing where i can type in the my phone and i give food right away i can get groceries delight a dog walker i don't get are going to clean my house i can find it being you know. we're giving out a lot of our information to strangers yes for convenience whether it's a day or a housecleaner or a dog walker or an over and think we all just i think we're better connected with the world around us and people we would probably be better but i would say be very careful when you're getting in right chairs text or license plate ask them for their name not tell them what your says or that and let someone know where you're going at all times brilliant brilliant way to keep so good all right as we go to as we go to break cock watchers don't forget to let us know what you think of the property over to facebook and twitter joe for those of our dot com coming up we look at the price of the black maternity caucus a couple of old exploit against the epidemic of child health care issues facing
7:39 am
black women united states and then we discover just tuesday it may be one of the still better to watch. player . bests drugs were at her cocaine as were four bucks for dia under fifty. everybody use cocaine crack cocaine you can smoke it this is worth like fifteen thirty. twenty. car came to this is about a fifteen dollar bet and people smoke this one bigger second sweetie you go on
7:40 am
these drugs in any city in the united states that you walk along as you want to get it about to. make money. and that's what i did every day. i didn't think the numbers mean something they've mattered us over one trillion dollars in debt more than ten white collar crimes happen each day. eighty five percent of global wealth he longs to be ultra rich eight point six percent world market thirty percent somewhat one hundred to five hundred three per second per second and when he rose to twenty thousand dollars. china's building two point one billion dollars a i industrial park but don't let the numbers over. the only number
7:41 am
you need to remember one one business show you know ford the mid one and only boom box. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy going from gary shouldn't let it be an arms race is also a scary dramatic development the only really engaging are those powers that strategy will be successful very critical of current usage. and. according to data from the centers for disease control and infant death records from two thousand and seven to two thousand and thirteen infants born to black
7:42 am
mothers are more than twice as likely to die before their first birthday as infants born to white mothers those rates hold true across all education levels from a ph d. to less than an eighth grade education black women are also three to four times more likely than white women to die during childbirth in the united states twelve times more likely in new york city racism is also a factor but not the overt kind so many of us are used to looking out for a twenty sixteen study by the university of virginia researchers found that white medical students and residents often believed by a lot of the biological myths about racial differences in patients including that black patients have less sensitive nerve endings and thicker skin than their white counterparts was because of this that the reid term u.s. congresswoman representative alma adams and freshman representative lauren under what announced this week the launch of the black maternal health caucus formed in partnership with the black mommas matter to address the issues head on with over
7:43 am
fifty founding members the caucus looks to advance a legislation that the federal level which is already momentum with over eighty bills already introduced addressing infant and maternal mortality joining us now to help us better understand both the causes and how to help is the director of midwifery community of hope fam. health and birth center at any marcella thank you so much for joining us happening. incredibly incredibly important topic and i want to start it shocked me but another good start a lot of people realize that until two thousand and eighteen the united states had the worst maternal death rate of any other development issues in fact u.s. infant mortality rates are said to be seventy one percent higher than in comparable countries and they are getting worse i have to ask you how did childbirth become so dangerous in the united states well that's a loaded question. well i think it's a whole bunch of different systems issues and failures and also
7:44 am
a lack of acknowledgement and awareness about institutionalized systematic reeses and how that please factor in birth. i don't think it's just one small thing i think it's a whole bunch of small things add all together to make a big bomb and it's concerning and look at you you know most people don't even know that their rates are that bad or that these disparities actually exist it's sort of shocking because i mean i grew up in a fairly poor community and it never was an issue the idea that there is an infant mortality rate that that women could die in childbirth in my forty years on this earth it isn't until the last few years that this issue is come up and in such a drastic way when you look at the numbers white women experience twelve point seven deaths per one hundred thousand live births you look at that number in the uk that the black women america it's forty three point five. it's not
7:45 am
a little bit and i'm going to ask you a question as as a midwife and i ask you a question the privacy of the answers here is there any physical difference between black women and white women that would make any scientific reason for a disparity in infant mortality or maternal mortality absolutely. we could have the larger conversation about chronic stress weathering those are not new theories we've known about this for decades they've been looking at research since the sixty's trying to rule out risk factors for education and marriage. crispy haber smoking and we all know that that doesn't really make a difference so i say that to say there's a difference in the sense that we are predisposed through racism chronic stress weathering to more vascular disorders such as diabetes hypertension and that also plays out in the birth world with pre-term birth. you know it's interesting to talk
7:46 am
about that was introducing this that you're still seeing in two thousand and sixteen. you know doctors who believe that there's some you know physical difference in strength and things of that nature of the black skin is harder to pierce with a needle but it's ridiculous to me that even today you see that kind of a life threatening to me and i got no place for any carry out and just even things like believing that african-americans have a higher pain tolerance and are less likely to get pain medication and more than likely they're seen as drug seeking it's scary to think that this is a reality but it is and that just shows us how embedded it is in our health care system true do you think that somewhat has it what has helped us as especially over the last year or so we've seen people like serina lambs come out and talk about how hard it was for her and you think about that and the idea of a woman who is one of the greatest at most i say the greatest alive right now and. just look at that one that someone so that level is still when they walk into their
7:47 am
very expensive hospital to their very expensive moment and say give birth they're still question is is it do we see over all that women because i feel women when it comes to our own reproductive health we are often question and doctor's office is that in a. overarching problem with black and white women and how do we address that in a way why i think we need to work on our training systems and how we're educating folks to become providers definitely i feel like black women there's there's tons actually of tons of research looking at studies listening to black women and they're saying they're not being listened to and the same case with serena williams like she kept asking the nurse and telling the nurse where she felt like she needed it but of course she wasn't believed that's just a small example of the many examples and especially when you take away the money the social economic the education background q. imagine how hard it is for a woman to navigate the system that is what i want to ask you to do but there's
7:48 am
another factor of the u.s. health care system that's always go to my. insurance and studies have shown that black women who are uninsured before pregnancy or slower to start prenatal care are more likely to lose coverage after giving birth which is a pretty important time to be able to have coverage as a how much does insurance coverage factor into the kind of care a woman receives or think she can afford to see will that limits her options i think with medicaid and specifically you know definitely she's going to have more options for educational settings hospitals but we need medicaid to actually cover more out of hospital birth when we're having conversations about trauma and folks how they're trying to navigate the systems they need to be able to have out of hospital birth options like birth centers home birth but most medicaid coverage in the most states will not cover it that's because of the truth is most people made
7:49 am
with free is what you went up until until some time after world war two and a lot of countries in here you gave birth at home you had a midwife or you maybe have a doctor coming back giving birth in a hospital wasn't the norm how do you feel that taking. way about personal world lead as if women don't know how to take care of birth themselves autonomy they don't have bodily autonomy and that's the issue and we're looking for autonomy we're looking for respect we're looking to be listened to and you know that whole saga includes the eradication of the granny midwife and the introduction of hospitals public health nursing and so i think that as we go back to that and as we start to appreciate current models black women lead initiatives or even you know i tell people all the time i channel my own ancestral granny midwives when i'm caring for women we're looking to empower women create better health literacy help them
7:50 am
navigate the systems provide better care port mission and support and i feel like there's definitely more movement towards that. you know we're seeing this kind of debate going right now between you know government run single payer socialized medicine and you know that there's still the kind of the health care that we're in right now in the united states which is you know all capitalism raised in insurance coverage what do you feel is better in the long run in your experience for. the health care of a child being born. in the job that you do i mean if you look at overseas most women when they engage in prenatal care they go directly to a midway we need a better collaborative system to where midwives and physicians enter great beautifully to where out of hospital birth providers and midwives are able to transfer and enter great while with physician backups and that physicians are able to be surgeons and care for high risk women we need
7:51 am
a better enter grecian of the system some of that has to do with bad legislation and before we run out of time i want to get that so the black maternal health caucus there playstyle a focus more on that legislation more of those things is there anywhere from your experience where does the legislation is it a regulation issue because we're seeing more and more. legislation that is meant to curb say abortion or meant to curbs funding for something but it actually makes it harder for midwives to do their job is there something in legislation that week that legislators need to focus absolutely supervisory language that's written around the different pathways of midwifery and just thinking about there's actually research that shows the states that have better regulation of midwives have better birth outcomes and the states that have the most restrictions have worse outcomes so midwifery is relationship based care and especially dealing with women with higher risk factors or not medically but socially fast the type of care that they need what do you think when we look at the women behind me taking on this mantle
7:52 am
and going into congress what do you think there will be able to provide and what do you think is next for them which we look for from the black maternal health caucus i don't know but i'm excited. i was actually there when they announced it with black mommas matter alliance i'm just hoping that this problem is finally getting addressed like for somebody like me or most people in the childbirth or birth community this isn't new we've known this it just hasn't gotten the direct attention that it's getting right now why do you think that is what do you think it is that's made us sort of i mean i know there's a lot of sectional t.v. shows around this that have sort of open people's eyes and more people are looking to being a more natural. way to give birth without all that because we've been filled with a bunch of it first it was gas then it was drugs then it was you know epidurals and everything else than the things you need what do you think we can look at and see
7:53 am
that really is helping us. for women to better leg empower themselves about their own child birth of their own why i feel like educated women are finding the ways to access that type of care it's the on educated or less educated or less lower socioeconomic background or challenge with having access to that care you know we have about over three hundred birth centers and a lot of them do not accept medicaid there are a lot of home birth practices that cannot afford to take medicaid we need to find a way to create these options because out of hospital birth can be transformative. and as you said trauma before in i don't want to stop is that it can be a very traumatic experience the idea of being intimate i've i've been in rooms of women giving birth in hospitals and it's it's traumatizing to watch i mean you're it's very it's just close to torture and i mean i mean it's literally scary there's big sometimes legs are up things are there and there's just people yelling and
7:54 am
masks and it's not and it's scary for me i can't imagine we're somewhere where for a woman who's having given birth there's alternatives you know i can be sent to hospital midwives deliver we say catch and most of the time i'm not ground up i don't deliver any position she can stand she's can squat we are the specialists and laboring moms who choose not to have pain medication i don't want to thank you for that work because it's really important and i think this is why when we sort of go away from care and patient care that cares about the patient and really puts that first this is when you end up with issues like infant mortality and thank you so much for doing thank you absolutely great work and put in so much. thank. you. around six thousand b.c. a group of migrants landed in britain with the gift of farming and according to the data research it looks like those migrants were part of the group that built stonehenge the migration began in what is now turkey and greece moving its way
7:55 am
north to lands inhabited by a small portion of hunter gatherers who did not interbreed with the new arrivals the migraine and migrants farmers brought the skills of farming with them as they move across britain and then europe and found a hospitable home for themselves in the north which explains their penchant for building megaliths like stone across the atlantic coast in addition it looks like the people who would eventually build stone hedge to the more complicated and dangerous the landtag route rather than a much shorter english channel i want to say here's to migration because it looks like without it places like britain wouldn't have them a british monument. to the graves and gentleman about is our show for you today remember when the world were not told we were above the flood so we will i love you i am i was dreaming of top of the well i keep on watching all those hawks out there are
