Who We Are

Experts believe that social, economic and racial stresses play an important role in poor birth outcomes for African-American women such as babies born too early and too small. Within a culturally affirming environment and honoring the unique history of African-American women, we aim to help women have healthy prenatal and postpartum journeys. Participants learn strategies to reduce stress and develop life skills. This is accomplished through a group based approach with complementary case management. We build social support, personal strengths, and set health promoting goals for mother and baby.
