Programs for Mamas
In New Jersey, Black women are 7-8 times more likely to die from a pregnancy-related complication.
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.
