And so today, what we're gonna be talking about is some of the ways that women can actually significantly lower their risk of having a furious complications with pregnancy or even death, and and so Dr kisha getting. I'm sorry, actually just call Dr Ganz doctor, but thank you so much for gagne Amish. Oh, thank you so much for having me. Thanks so much. So let's just I first of all start out with like, how did you decide you are going to be a doctor, and how did you decide you to specialize this. Area? Well, that's kind of interesting. My mom told me that when I was around four years, I was running around telling people that I was going to be surgeon. So you know, you listen to what the four year old says, you know, particularly sent. I was also saying I wanted to have an elephant as a pet, so you gotta listen. Yeah, yet. But then you know, I really had a love of science and math, and it just kinda let me to the path. Initially, I wanted to be a pediatrician, but then when I did my third year rotation, they put me on the pediatric service on college service. It was kind of sad dealing with all of those children with cancer and going for chemo and with and so on. So that that kind of termi off a little bit. And then my next rotation was OB and I was fortunate enough to work under the auspices of a great maternal fetal medicine specialist dot to under g so that the sender, gee, if you're out there, you really were. You know, we're great mentor to me, and that's just I fell in love with it. And that just, you know what I wanted to do it affords a little bit of everything.

So I, you know, statistically they say that maternal death is on the rise, which was kind of surprising to me because I mean, we've kinda think about that being long ago that people would die childbirth. And now it seems like it's extraordinarily rare, but there is a rather significant number of women that's still in childbirth. That's correct. And you know, I think that there are number of factors that kind of play into it. Certainly, when we're talking about maternal death, one of the things that I think really needs to be highlighted is there's a high rate of morbidity and mortality specifically among black women. A lot of things that go into a high maternal death rate. First of all, we're having babies
