[Left Column] CBS News: ‘How climate change threatens pregnant women & their fetuses’ – ‘Rising temperatures put extra stress on a mother & fetus’

CBS News: Rising temperatures put extra stress on a mother and fetus. A 2020 Harvard study found a link between gestational diabetes and extreme heat. This summer, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists issued guidance on the link between extreme temperatures and irregular birth outcomes.  Even a hurricane can put expectant mothers under enough added stress that the weather can lead to higher rates of preterm births.

President Joe Biden's Build Back Better plan includes legislation to address the link between climate threats and pregnancy. Representative Lauren Underwood, a Democrat from Illinois, has introduced legislation that would help educate medical professionals and patients on climate-change related risks for pregnant people.
