About Us

2015 Summit-018 c Leah Stern

Our Mission

HealthConnect One is the national leader in advancing respectful, community-based, peer-to-peer support for pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding and early parenting.

Our Vision

To see every baby, mother, and family thrive in a healthy community.

Our Work

We train community health workers, or lay health promoters, who make a personal commitment to improving the health of their own community.

We assist organizations in developing programs that use the power of peer support, incorporating trained community health workers into paid positions in outreach, health education and community health advocacy programs.

We mobilize diverse stakeholders to build for policies and programs that improve maternal and child health in some of the most distressed communities in the country.

Our approach helps to strengthen and transform communities over time.

How can we help you?

Training? Consultation? Facilitation? Our work is based on the principles of popular education.

I have been effective in helping families choose breastfeeding, and sticking with it. It is truly my passion to help restore the confidence in mothering, that was somehow lost in generations.
