    PBS NewsHour Weekend [#894H] Memphis Midwives More women in America die from pregnancy-related complications than in any other developed country in the world, a rate that has been rising during the last two decades. The outcomes in the U.S. are even more dire for black women, who are three times more likely than white women to die in childbirth and 49 percent more likely to give birth prematurely. But a study released this year found that states that have done more to include midwives in their obstetric systems tend to have better outcomes for mothers and babies. Midwives address not only the physical needs of pregnant women, but their social, emotional, and mental needs as well. NewsHour Weekend's Ivette Feliciano reports on one clinic in Memphis, Tennessee, where midwives are working to bring that holistic care to women of color. duration 26:46   STEREO TVRE
