CNN Digital Studios Premieres Film Series on ‘Giving Birth in America’

Today CNN announced that they are rolling out  ‘Giving Birth in America,’ a three-part film series executive-produced by global maternal health advocate and founder of Every Mother Counts, Christy Turlington Burns.  The series examines some of the contributing factors that have made the U.S. the only industrialized country with a consistently rising maternal mortality rate.  The films will publish across CNN’s digital platforms today.

Available at www.cnn.com/mothers, each short film follows pregnant women and their healthcare providers in Florida, Montana and New York in the days leading up to delivery. Together, they navigate challenges of race, poverty, chronic illness, overuse of medical interventions and other inequalities that impact maternal health outcomes in America. 

“We are thrilled that CNN recognizes the urgency of this issue and grateful for the opportunity to reach new audiences and inspire others to take action through their platform,” said Turlington Burns. “Most maternal deaths in the U.S. are preventable. Together, we can make pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother, everywhere.”
