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.

We realize there are different capacities in which people are able to contribute ~ Every little bit counts, as we all have an important part to play.
Why not educate yourself about why mothers and babies are dying. What is the impact of institutional, structural and systemic racism, classism, and sexism? What about personally mitigated implicit and explicit biases? Is it possible that many people are living with ‘post traumatic stress disorder’ due to a continual series of traumatic life events? Could it be that all this disempowerment is contributing to the poor health outcomes that have become the norm for American mothers and babies?
