  1. Serena’s story really touched me. Good for her that she knew the care she needed and demanded it. I am so angry at the level of maternal care in USA, especially for black women. If Serena gets this kind of treatment, what about the rest of us?

    Also, I love, love, love the photo of her and her baby on the cover of Vogue.
