#SaludTues Tweetchat 9/15─Hear Her: Preventing Pregnancy-related Deaths

Every woman’s health matters.

A pregnancy can bring potential complications to both mother and child. Some risks are worse for Latinas and other mothers of color.

That’s why the CDC’s new campaign, “Hear Her,” encourages all women to know how to prevent maternal mortality, and share their concerns with their health care provider.

Let’s use #SaludTues on Tuesday, Sept. 15, 2020, to tweet about the importance of CDC’s new campaign and maternal health, especially for Latinas in honor of the launch of Hispanic Heritage Month (9/15 to 10/15)!
