The pandemic continues, and Black, Brown and Indigenous moms, babies and families continue to be impacted at disproportionate levels. COVID-19 has amplified existing racial injustices, health care inequities and trauma in these communities.
Now is the time to invest in Black, Brown and Indigenous communities. Join the heroes who have emerged and are making a difference. People just like you who are committed to racial equity during a national health crisis. People who are committed to hope.
As we talk to birth workers and moms across the country, they speak of their need for support, information, and resources, but they also talk about hope. Tenesha, a birth worker in Georgia, shared:
Moms who attend our virtual baby café vent about the stressors of COVID-19 while trying to maintain their milk supplies and safe pregnancy and their mental states. I’m hopeful that another family has a safe and COVID-19 free pregnancy, delivery and breastfeeding experience, all while keeping their mental sanity and everyday life safe.
Help us birth hope for moms, babies and families in communities devastated by COVID-19 by donating to HealthConnect One today! Your generous donation helps balance the scales for birthing Black, Brown and Indigenous families and the birth workers supporting them.
Let’s end 2020 strong! Together, we continue to birth healthier communities during this turbulent time.
