Whether you are an advocate for change for birthing families, community-based doula, peer counselor or other community health worker, in Congress advocating for Black maternal health, a colleague working to change systems and policies,– or just learning about the issue of birth equity — we thank you for viewing our content this week!
Together we are strong and birthing a world that supports all moms, babies, and families.
Thank you, Birth Equity Leaders! All the leaders and faculty of BELA are impacting their communities in important ways especially during COVID-19.
Thank you, Congresswoman Lauren Underwood! As the Irving Harris Legacy Award honoree, you are a leader in the field of policy for Black maternal health, working to find solutions to improve birth outcomes for Black mothers.
We hope you will continue to support these fierce leaders who are needed even more by moms and birthing families during this difficult time.
Lastly, HealthConnect One is more relevant than ever as we continue to work for birth equity and change the conversation around pregnancy, birth, postpartum, and early parenting. It is with your support that together we can move closer to realizing birth equity for every birthing person across our country.
We welcome your feedback and thoughts on the next move forward to support families and treat every baby, as our baby.
We’re also grateful to sponsors of our virtual Every Baby Our Baby this year: Gold sponsors the Irving Harris Foundation and Perigee Fund; Silver sponsor, Navistar, and Copper sponsors, Mairita Smiltars, Gordon Mayer Communications, and Graceful Fusion Birth Doula Trainings.
Our work to support and train community-based doulas, peer counselors and other community health workers continues. We appreciate you for being here. If you are able to support this work at any level, you can contribute here.
