New research indicates women with mental health challenges have a 50% higher chance of having sever clinical conditions during labor or delivery. We talked about the research with Dr. Clare Brown, an assistant professor at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. She led the research in collaboration with colleagues from the Institute for Medicaid Innovation in Washington, D.C.
