Maternal and Infant Health

Health by Numbers

In commemoration of Black Maternal Health week this month, it remains critical that we continue to focus on eliminating disparities in maternal and infant health outcomes for African-American women in San Mateo County.  In 2019 Black women represented 3 percent of Health Plan of San Mateo clients with the least amount of births but comprised the highest rate of C-section births at 35.3 percent as compared to all other races/ethnicities.  (Health Plan of San Mateo 2019 data)
