Intersection: Pregnant & Poor In The Sunshine State

Play Audio

The Florida Department of Health is getting out of prenatal care.

Fewer than half of county health departments now offer care for pregnant women. So what does that mean if you’re pregnant and poor?

All this week, 90.7 is reporting on the decline of prenatal care in Florida.

This week on Intersection, 90.7’s Abe Aboraya has the story of a newborn going through detox and how healthcare providers are trying to figure out how to treat pregnant addicts.

Then, we talk to leaders from Orange, Seminole and Volusia Counties about the state of the safety net for the pregnant and poor. Check here to see the full Pregnant and Poor series from WMFE.
