|dc.description.abstract||Maternal Health requires a bioethical evaluation to thoroughly address and reduce the troubling statistics and events of pregnancy-related complications and maternal mortality. Maternal mortality affects African American women three to four times more than any other race, therefore presenting race as a factor. Types of experienced racism and the overall scientific pathway are explored in relation to the health of African-American women. Race-related stress and its association with adverse maternal health outcomes is an important issue to consider when evaluating the maternal health complications. In addition, addressing the result of unethical inequalities in the healthcare system in combination with other societal contributions is essential when trying to recognize its impact on the experience of pregnancy. This thesis explores the impact of racism on maternal outcomes and health of African-American mothers, beyond the commonly understood influences of other socio-economic factors.|
