On the day before Mother's Day, a campaign kicked off to highlight the struggles many women of color face during pregnancy.
The We See You, We Hear You campaign kicked off Saturday to highlight the inequalities in health care for pregnant women of color.
Bruce McIntyre started the Save a Rose Foundation in honor of his wife, Amber Rose Isaac, who died a year ago after complications from her pregnancy. The foundation hosted Saturday's rally.
"We're trying to end medical racism," he says.
McIntyre now works to advocate for midwives and doulas, and to get pregnant women of color the help they need.
The Save a Rose Foundation is encouraging women who are pregnant to continue to seek help, and find advocates to help them get through their pregnancies with the best possible care.
