New Jersey Black mamas deserve to flourish and thrive during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum.
In New Jersey Black women are 7-8 times more likely to die from a pregnancy related complication. Over 92% of those deaths are preventable. Our programs are designed to restore JOY and ensure ZERO preventable maternal deaths using models that are designed by and for Black women.
We believe that Black models of care should be utilized in the service of holistic care to Black women. The programs we develop center birth equity and the lived experiences of Black women to keep Black women safe during pregnancy and beyond so that they may experience joy in motherhood.
Our staff consists of IBCLCs (International Board Certified Lactation Consultants) and CBS (Certified Breastfeeding Specialist) to provide you with the skills and knowledge you need to be successful in your breastfeeding journey. >>>>Learn more.
