Watch the Hulu documentary, “Aftershock”

On July 19, 2022, the award-winning documentary, ‘Aftershock’, which addresses the crisis in Black maternal health in the U.S. was released internationally on Hulu and Disney+. The film depicts the stories of two young mothers, Shamony Gibson and Amber Isaac, whose tragic and preventable deaths have amplified the presence and impact of racism and inequity in the reproductive healthcare system. This powerful piece follows Shamony and Amber’s families, who work tirelessly as activists to transform the system and stop the scourge of maternal mortality from taking more Black lives.
