MATERNAL AND
FETAL HEALTH

From pregnancy to parenthood, worry to joy, and tears to smiles —
let’s talk about you and your baby’s health.

Healthier Pregnancies
for Everyone

Through anecdotes and research, we know pregnancies for black people are riskier. But it shouldn’t be.

We believe in healthier pregnancies for everyone expecting a little one.

We are here to support black people who have been, are currently, or are trying to be pregnant, and anyone else who’s interested in this life-changing experience.

Even though this was her second pregnancy, Tiffany Whitlow had concerns — will the baby be okay? Will he need any extra support to be healthy and happy? Follow her journey as she prepared to welcome her baby boy, Ace!
