The National Perinatal Task Force is a grassroots movement to start and grow Perinatal Safe Spots (PSS) in every ‘Materno-toxic Area’ in the USA, in order to eliminate racial and class disparities in birth outcomes, and to create equity and power in maternal child health care.
Why are mothers and babies dying and being harmed in a system that spends billions of Dollars annually on maternity care? What is the impact of institutional, structural and systemic racism, classism, and sexism in maternal child health? What about personally mitigated implicit and explicit biases? Our overall maternal and infant mortality rates are worsening every year and the gaps between people of color and white people are widening.
Finally a NEW approach to maternal health and wellness…
…an approach that provides Access, Connections, Knowledge and Empowerment to all women as a means to optimal health. Our ultimate goal is that ALL women have healthcare answers that they can understand. We support and encourage system changes that embrace this NEW patient-centered, woman-centered approach and we provide information and training regarding such changes.
