Overdue is a pregnancy and postpartum resource for Black moms- and parents-to-be. Presented by mater mea and Un-ruly in partnership with Gerber, the platform was created in response to the Black maternal mortality crisis. Black women are three times more likely to die than white women during pregnancy or childbirth. At the same time studies have shown that doula-assisted mothers are more likely to have positive birthing outcomes.
Overdue is a way to bring the informational support doulas provide to as many Black expectant parents as possible.
