Black women are five times more likely to die in pregnancy and childbirth. In the words of John Boyega, “We need to care of them. They are us. They are our future. We cannot demonize our own. We are the pillars of the family.“ To my wife, @itspsd you’re nothing short of amazing, and I’m so proud to be your husband and twice as excited that you’re the mother to our baby boy. ❤️💙 On that note, if you haven’t already, go and watch the Labour & Delivery story live on our ‘Mike and Perri’ YouTube channel.
