What has Rochelle Humes said about the Black Maternity Scandal?
Last week, Rochelle appeared on This Morning to discuss her brand new documentary.
When asked if the subject affected her as a mother, she explained: “One hundred percent. I don’t think you have to be a mother for it to affect you. On a human level it’s not okay.
“The disparities are so vast and it’s not okay, and as a mother it broke me really, it really did.”

In addition, Rochelle shared: “The main issue that comes to play is that black women aren’t feeling like their pain is being taken seriously or that they’re listened to and that is the underlying issue that comes up time after time.”
Meanwhile, back in February, Rochelle found herself at the centre of a Twitter storm over the doc.
At the time, author Candice Brathwaite claimed she was supposed to host it.
However, Channel 4 insisted Rochelle didn’t replace Candice.
