Black women face a higher risk of cardiac issues in pregnancy and postpartum than women of other races and ethnicities. Pregnancy-related symptoms can be warning signs for heart conditions, stroke, and blood clots after the baby is born. Warning signs during and after pregnancy, listening to your body, and talking with your doctor about anything that doesn’t feel right including sadness, anxiety, self-care, and caring for your baby will be discussed.
