President Biden’s promise to “build back better” apparently also applies to “birthing people,” according to the 2022 budget proposal from his administration’s Office of Management and Budget.
In the section on “strengthening public health infrastructure and meeting crisis-related needs,” President Biden claims his budget “reduces maternal mortality rate and ends race-based disparities in maternal mortality.”
The United States has the highest maternal mortality rate among developed nations, with an unacceptably high mortality rate for Black, American Indian/Alaska Native, and other women of color. To help end this high rate of maternal mortality and race-based disparities in outcomes among birthing people—and in addition to the investment in maternal health included in the American Families Plan—the Budget includes more than $200 million to: reduce maternal mortality and morbidity rates nationwide; bolster Maternal Mortality Review Committees; expand the Rural Maternity and Obstetrics Management Strategies program; help cities place early childhood development experts in pediatrician offices with a high percentage of Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program patients; implement implicit bias training for healthcare providers; and create State pregnancy medical home programs.
