Building Your Dream Birth Team

The maternal mortality rate for Black women has reached crisis levels—with Black women 3-4x more likely to die than their white counterparts from pregnancy- and delivery-related complications, many pregnant women are left wondering if what should be a magical moment will lead to her becoming a statistic or having a traumatic birth story.

But there are ways Black women can have empowering birth experiences—and that's through having an A+ birthing team filled with professionals and advocates who have your back.

Join mater mea and the Motherhood Center for an evening filled with storytelling and expert advice from birthing professionals—an OB-GYN, doula, therapist, and midwife. Learn from experts and fellow moms, and identify what you'll need to have an empowered and informed birth.

This is a child-friendly event.
