ARC Ob/Gyn a Featured Speaker at Maternal Health Summit

Crystal Berry-Roberts, MDOb/Gyn at ARC South OB, joined a panel of community experts at the Black Mothers Summit, held March 27 at Huston-Tillotson University in Austin. The panel discussion highlighted the needs of black women, how racism plays a role in maternal mortality rates, and how institutions can change to be more receptive to the crisis. The Summit was attended by physicians, policymakers, researchers and community activists, who gathered to address the black maternal health crisis in Travis County.

According to the Maternal Mortality and Morbidity State Task Force, black women in Texas have a higher risk of maternal death than any other racial group. Speaking about displacement and neighborhood gentrification as contributing causes, Dr.Berry-Roberts said she worries about the reality of experiences and that the city “will be skewed about what they think is important and what we should be fighting for.” “It’s about empowering women to know you have choices and you don’t have to sit back silently,” she added.
