The primary outcome was composite maternal adverse outcome, which included any of the following: admission to intensive care unit, transfusion of blood products, ruptured uterus, unplanned hysterectomy, or unplanned operating room procedure after delivery (defined as any transfer of the mother back to a surgical area for an operative procedure that was not planned before the admission for delivery. Among women with at least a bachelor’s degree, small but measurable racial and ethnic disparities in composite maternal and neonatal adverse outcomes. Paradies Y, Ben J, Denson N, Elias A, Priest N, Pieterse A, et al. We used multivariable Poisson regression models with robust error variance to examine the association between maternal race and ethnicity (non-Hispanic white as the referent group) and the risk of composite maternal and neonatal adverse outcomes while adjusting for maternal age (younger than 30 years, 30–34 years, 35 years or older), nulliparous (yes, no, unknown), prenatal care (yes, no, unknown), cigarette use during pregnancy (yes, no, unknown), diabetes (no diabetes, pregestational diabetes, gestational diabetes), hypertensive disorders (yes, no, unknown), prepregnancy body mass index (BMI, calculated as weight in kilograms divided by height in meters squared) (underweight [less than 18.5], normal weight [18.5–24.9], overweight [25–29.9], obesity class I [30.0–34.9], obesity class II [35.0–39.9], obesity class III [40 or greater], unknown), education (bachelor's degree, master's degree, doctorate or professional degree), marital status (married, not married), insurance status (Medicaid, private insurance, self-pay, other insurance, unknown), neonatal sex (male, female), and delivery year (2011, 2012, 2013). Maternal prepregnancy BMI and size at birth: race/ethnicity-stratified, within-family associations in over 500,000 siblings. 1). The secondary outcome, composite neonatal adverse outcome, included 5-minute Apgar score less than 5, assisted ventilation for more than 6 hours, neonatal seizure, birth injury, or neonatal death. A recent study examining the impact of hospital quality on racial and ethnic disparities in pregnancy-related morbidity in New York City found that differences in the hospitals where Black and White women deliver contribute to the disparity in severe maternal morbidity rates. Compared with the previous version, the 2003 version contains more detailed obstetric, medical, and demographic data.12 The revised birth certificate was used by 36 states and Washington, DC, in 2011, with increasing numbers of states adopting the revised birth certificate form in subsequent years. Maternal morbidity and mortality (MMM) is a significant problem in the USA, with about 700 maternal deaths every year and an estimated 50,000 “near misses.” Disparities in MMM by race are marked; black women are disproportionately affected. The literature abounds with examples of racial/ethnic disparities in both obstetric outcomes and care. Compared with the referent group (neonates delivered by non-Hispanic white mothers), the risk of composite neonatal adverse outcome was significantly higher among neonates with non-Hispanic black mothers (aRR 1.25; 95% CI 1.20–1.30) and significantly lower among neonates with Hispanic mothers (aRR 0.71; 95% CI 0.68–0.75). December 8, 2020 BACKGROUND: Infants with congenital heart defects (CHDs) have increased risk of childhood morbidity and mortality. Neonates with Hispanic mothers had a lower risk of composite neonatal adverse outcome across all gestational ages at birth as compared with those with non-Hispanic white mothers. Some error has occurred while processing your request. Of these, 81.5% were delivered by non-Hispanic white women, 8.5% were non-Hispanic black women, and 10.0% were Hispanic women (Fig. Your message has been successfully sent to your colleague. Non-Hispanic black mothers had higher rates of hypertension, pregestational diabetes, preterm births, and cesarean delivery (Table 1). maternal mortality in New York State, as well as the impact of racism on maternal health outcomes among black women. The selected Green Journal articles are free through the end of the calendar year. The literature abounds with examples of racial/ethnic disparities in both obstetric outcomes and care. The Call to Action examines the current state of maternal mortality and morbidity, including the stark racial and ethnic, geographic, and age disparities across America. Racial and ethnic disparities in pregnancy-related deaths have persisted over time. Schoenman JA, Berk ML, Feldman JJ. Severe maternal morbidity (SMM) is 50 to 100 times more common than maternal death, and has increased disproportionately among ethnic/racial minority women in the United States. Mortality Disparities in Racial/Ethnic Minority Groups in the Veterans Health Administration: An Evidence Review and Map. This is consistent with other literature showing that nonresponse rates on national surveys are higher among minorities, especially black women.21,22 Although nonresponse could introduce a nonresponse bias, the overall rate of nonresponse was low. Finally, the birth certificate does not have information on income, occupation, and other potential proxy for socioeconomic status. 2021 Jan 6;7(1):3. doi: 10.1186/s40748-020-00123-1. This relationship is often seen among foreign born Hispanic women, and outcomes tend to progressively worsen with successive generations within the United States.15 Although less pronounced in magnitude, analogous differences in birth outcomes have been seen between foreign-born and native-born black women,16 with foreign-born black women being less likely to give birth to premature or low birth weight neonates.16 It has been suggested that, despite improvements in socioeconomic status, the stress of disenfranchisement and racism toward people of color in the United States has long-term sequelae manifested as worsening of health outcomes.17,18, In regard to the difference in risk of composite neonatal adverse outcome among neonates from different racial and ethnic mothers, our findings are congruent with studies examining neonates born to mothers of all levels of educational attainment.7,8.

There is a striking disparity in maternal and infant mortality rates between African American … To begin to parse these potential theories, it is important to understand the individual contribution that each of these factors play in these disparities. Black women are twice as likely to experience severe maternal morbidity (SMM) and three to four times more likely to die of pregnancy-related causes compared to non-Hispanic White women; in New York City, their pregnancy-related mortality risk increases to eight-fold ( Boyd et al., … F32 HD091945/HD/NICHD NIH HHS/United States, R01 NR017020/NR/NINR NIH HHS/United States.

Unadjusted (left) and adjusted (right). Trends in racial and ethnic disparities in infant mortality rates in the United States, 1989–2006. The results of the sensitivity analysis examining composite maternal adverse outcome without maternal transfusion showed that, similar to the primary analysis, the risk of composite maternal adverse outcome were significantly higher among non-Hispanic black women (aRR 1.19; 95% CI 1.11–1.28) but significantly lower among Hispanic women (aRR 0.65; 95% CI 0.60–0.71; Table 5). Compared with the referent group (non-Hispanic white women), the risk of composite maternal adverse outcome were significantly higher among non-Hispanic black women (aRR 1.20; 95% CI 1.13–1.27) but significantly lower among Hispanic women (aRR 0.69; 95% CI 0.64–0.74). Often people in these groups have varied risk of adverse outcomes owing to diverse genetic ancestry, culture, and environmental exposures.20 Secondly, because our study used data from the U.S. Vital Statistics data sets, detailed clinical information, such as duration of labor, postpartum hemorrhage, level of hospital care, public or private hospital, and hospital volume, was unavailable for analysis. The adverse outcomes are uncommon and interventions to mitigate them, especially given the likely multifactorial cause, may be difficult to implement. Yet, the report concluded, roughly 3 in 5 pregnancy-related deaths are preventable. The large sample size permitted us to compare uncommon outcomes (eg, neonatal seizure which are linked with long-term sequelae), and to adjust for known confounders. Among women with at least a bachelor's degree, compared with non-Hispanic white women, non-Hispanic black women had a significantly higher risk of composite maternal adverse outcome, whereas Hispanic women had a significantly lower risk of composite maternal adverse outcome. 2014 Aug;10(4):318-25. doi: 10.1089/chi.2014.0022. Our study used data from 2011 to 2013 from states that had adopted the updated 2003 revised birth certificate. 16. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 4. Although studies have shown that this is an accurate way of determining race and ethnicity, there is still the opportunity for misclassification bias, as race is often affected by personal and societal perception.19 Additionally, the classifications used nationally of non-Hispanic white, non-Hispanic black, and Hispanic encompass significant ethnic heterogeneity and people of varied origin. Racial disparities in maternal morbidity and mortality have been consistently reported in the literature, with risk of maternal mortality 3.5-fold higher for black women. Boone-Heinonen J, Biel FM, Marshall NE, Snowden JM. Disparities in maternal mortality are well documented with non-Hispanic blacks carrying the burden of the highest maternal mortality rates.

There is research to suggest that surveys with response rates greater than 65% are unlikely to have appreciable changes in point estimates or data quality.23 Thus, nonresponse in our population, where response rates were greater than 90%, is unlikely to be a major contributor of bias. Racial and ethnic disparities in maternal and infant outcomes persist in the United States, with Black women being 3-4 times more likely to die of pregnancy-related causes, compared with Latina and non-Latina white women, Elizabeth Howell, MD, We were not able to examine the associations using these socioeconomic status measures.

Ann Epidemiol. In the United States, significant racial and ethnic differences exist in perinatal outcomes,1–3 exemplified by variable rates of preterm birth,4 maternal morbidity,5 and maternal mortality,6 as well as neonatal morbidity and mortality.7,8 These differences have persisted for decades, and in the case of maternal mortality, the disparity has increased over time.1, The potential reasons for the racial and ethnic disparities include social factors, such as access to health care, availability of nutritious foods, and trust in healthcare system.9 Systematic, societal racism and the consequences of enduring stress of racism over generations may also contribute to the disparate outcomes.10 Additionally, differences in socioeconomic status—social attainment and education—may contribute to the differential outcomes among mother–newborn dyads.11. 12. Other factors and interventions need examination to mitigate the persistent disparities in peripartum outcomes. 21. Flores G, Lin H.

Almost 70% of the women who delivered did not have a college degree. Neonates with non-Hispanic black mothers, although having an overall higher risk of composite neonatal adverse outcome, had a lower risk of composite neonatal adverse outcome when born preterm, as compared with neonates with non-Hispanic white mothers. For immediate assistance, contact Customer Service: As such, we sought to evaluate the disparities in maternal and neonatal morbidity among mothers who have attained a college education or higher, to determine whether after accounting for this proxy for socioeconomic status, disparities are still present. The ACA made incredible progress in increasing the number of people with affordable health insurance, with roughly 20 million more people obtaining insurance under this law.4 This leap forward has helped millions access the health care they need, and recent studies have shown that, while access to health insurance does not eliminat… Looking for ABOG articles?
