BREASTFEEDING
Fostering models of breast feeding support that are culturally appropriate and specific.
DOULAS
Utilizing specially trained doulas to work  with moms  most at risk  for disrupted/dis functional labors.
Lactation Consultants
Steering our community women to providers and facilities that practice evidence-based care.
Childbirth Education
Creating culturally specific childbirth education with a focus on client empowerment.
Midwifery Care
Educating our community on the inherent bias that is part of the maternity care system.
Health Disparities
Raising awareness of perinatal inequities  in the African-American community.
