The Post Roe Baby Boom

EHRP-Supported Documentary Wins Peabody Award

EHRP-supported documentary The Post Roe Baby Boom: Inside Mississippi’s Maternal Health Crisis won a Peabody Award in the public service category. Produced in partnership with USA Today and The Tennessean, Mona Iskander and Yasmeen Qureshi follow Mississippi women’s forced pregnancies and births after the Dobbs ruling overturned Roe v. Wade.

“It was because of [EHRP’s] grant that Mona was able to spend extra time building rapport with the women in Mississippi,” Qureshi shares with us.
