According to research, African American women are nearly four times more likely to die from pregnancy related complications than are white women. African American women are also two to three times more likely to experience preterm birth, and three times more likely to give birth to a low birthweight infant. African American infants are about 230 percent more likely than white infants to die before their first birthdays.
Our heartbeat is to make exceptional midwifery care easily accessible to EVERY woman, regardless of her demographic background; and to eliminate the racial disparity in birth outcomes among African American women and their babies. Providing and maintaining quality continuity of care for all women, echoes our heart’s desire to celebrate the unique story of each individual. We believe in empowering families through education and informed decision making. It is our desire to see all families thrive and flourish, one healthy pregnancy and birth at a time.
