Mamas in Bloom is designed by and for Black mams to improve pregnancy, birth, and infant outcomes in Essex and Union County NJ.
All mothers are eligible regardless of income. Families can enroll at any point during their pregnancy or within the first 3 months after giving birth. All mamas are provided with wrap-around support for the first year postpartum. The program combines education, advocacy, and clinical care provided by our team of nurses and community health workers.
