The episode is titled If Not Now, When? and is inspired by the true story of Charles Johnson and his wife Kira Dixon Johnson. Stream this episode HERE!

Kira was allowed to bleed internally for more than 10 hours before the medical staff at Cedars Sinai took action. Since her death her husband Charles S. Johnson, IV has been fighting to make sure this never happens to another mother. More women die in the United States each year than in any other civilized country in the world.
