Dr. Michael Q. Smith, MD
Birth is beautiful, but it also has a dark side. Both mothers and babies are at risk during the birth process, and for some races and ethnicities, those risks are higher than others. On this episode of CommonHealth, we introduce Dr. Michael Smith, an OB/GYN and director of the women’s program at the Greater Prince William Community Health Center. Dr. Smith speaks to us about maternal and infant health statistics and why we see certain disparities in the numbers.
