It's 2021 and the medical field has come quite a long way and continues to be innovative. Listen...they are out here discovering blood tests that can detect Alzheimer's & seeing breakthroughs in long-term research. Not to mention creating vaccines on a whim. Hospitals are expanding, remodeling, and investing in state-of-the-art facilities. The United States is home to some of the greatest doctors in the world.
Yet, here we are. In 2021, black women are at the very forefront of maternal mortality statistics. There are alarming disparities between the rate at which black women are dying during pregnancy, childbirth, and/or postpartum. Black Mamas Matter Alliance (BMMA) is the leading organization behind the national campaign, Black Maternal Health Week. 2021 marks their 4th annual week of events that spark activism & awareness.
We are thrilled to support this organization and its mission to bring awareness to black maternal health.
