Our mission is to become allies in the multicultural maternal health journey, ensuring that minority women get access to high-quality healthcare before, during, and after their pregnancy.

Our Mission

To provide quality health care and education programs so that every mother has the opportunity to thrive.

The Problem

Black women in the United States are 3 to 5 times more likely to die from pregnancy or postpartum issues than white women.

The estimated national maternal mortality rate in the United States is about 17 per 100,000 live births––but it is about 43 per 100,000 live births for Black women.

Main Causes

OTHER FINDINGS

Our Resources

Maternal and Infant Mortality

Maternal mortality refers to the death of a woman during pregnancy, childbirth, or within 42 days of delivery. On the other hand, infant mortality refers to the death of a newborn baby within the first year of life. Both maternal and infant mortality are important indicators of the health and well-being of a population and can be influenced by a range of factors such as access to healthcare, nutrition, and socioeconomic status.

Reducing Disparities in Adverse Pregnancy

Reducing disparities in adverse pregnancy refers to efforts to close the gaps in maternal and infant health outcomes experienced by certain groups of women. These disparities are often driven by social determinants of health, including race, ethnicity, income, education, and access to quality healthcare. 

Adequate Prenatal Care

Adequate prenatal care refers to the comprehensive medical and lifestyle support a pregnant woman receives to ensure the best possible health outcomes for both her and her baby. This care includes regular prenatal visits with a healthcare provider, proper nutrition and exercise, testing and screening for potential complications or issues, and education and counseling on various aspects of pregnancy, childbirth, and parenting.

Black Maternal Mortality

Black maternal mortality refers to the higher rates of pregnancy-related deaths among Black women than among other racial or ethnic groups. This issue results from systemic racism and healthcare disparities, including limited access to quality prenatal and postpartum care, racial bias and discrimination, and inadequate maternal health education.
