Racial Disparities: Black infants have significantly higher mortality rates than white infants, with the infant mortality rate for Black babies in the U.S. being more than twice that of white babies. Black women are also three to four times more likely to die from pregnancy-related complications.
Preterm Birth and Low Birth Weight: Black infants have higher rates of preterm birth and low birth weight, increasing the risk of infant mortality. The preterm birth rate among Black women is around 13%, compared to 9% for white women.
Maternal Health: Black women experience higher rates of pregnancy-related complications, such as preeclampsia, hypertension, and diabetes, which contribute to adverse birth outcomes and increased infant mortality rates among Black infants.
Access to Healthcare: Disparities in access to healthcare services affect infant mortality rates in Black communities. Limited access to quality prenatal care, healthcare facilities, and health insurance coverage contributes to higher infant mortality rates among Black infants. Additionally, inadequate prenatal care is more common among Black women, further increasing the risks for adverse birth outcomes.
