About the Event
April 11-17th is Black Maternal Health Week. Black Mamas Matter Alliance (BMMA) created this annual event to create awareness, start conversations, encourage community organizing, and to center the voices of Black Mamas. The Louisville Coalition for Black Maternal Health has been busy planning virtual activities as a way to amplify and uplift this work.
The Louisville Coalition for Black Maternal Health is comprised of perinatal service providers and community organizers. Members include healthcare providers, midwives, nurses, doulas, lactation specialists, mental health practitioners, public health advocates, and social justice organizers.
Our goal is to raise awareness and promote health equity in Louisville. We want this week’s program to be a platform to ignite change and improve outcomes for Black Mamas in our community. We want participants to leave with tangible advice or steps that can lead to actions. We want to provide the community with the space to learn, comment, and critique. We want to examine the status quo and evaluate how current practices and policies are impacting Black maternal health. Register today to participate in this important week of events.
