Black Maternal Health Week 2020

BMHW was launched by the Black Mamas Matter Alliance to create awareness and foster action to address Black Maternal Mortality (and to a degree Black Infant Mortality).

Partners across our Countywide Network are planning several virtual events, acknowledging that our work has even deeper importance during this pandemic. Join us in celebrating and supporting joyous and healthy births. We're calling on everyone to become a village of support for pregnant people and families. Also planned are sessions on pregnancy and childbirth in light of COVID and what families can do to support the healthiest birth possible. Take the "We are the Village" Pledge Here.


All events will be Broadcast on
