Event description
A Sister Circle Conversation About Black Maternal & Infant Health in LA County

About this event

Cherished Futures for Black Moms & Babies, the California Black Women's Health Project, and the Los Angeles County African American Infant and Maternal Mortality (AAIMM) Prevention Initiative invites you to join us for an evening of sisterhood and intimate conversation as we continue the discussion about how to improve hospital births for Black people in LA County, especially South LA, South Bay, and the Antelope Valley.

We'll share how the recommendations from our first circle in the summer of 2020 were utilized by hospital partners participating in Cherished Futures for Black Moms & Babies, Together, we will deepen our collective vision for more culturally aligned care and joyous births.

We encourage African American/Black pregnant and parenting people, birth justice advocates, birth professionals (i.e.- perinatal providers, doulas, breastfeeding professionals, etc.) who live or work in South LA, South Bay, or the Antelope Valley to attend.

For questions, please contact Dana Sherrod at dsherrod@phi.org or Natalie Champion at natalie@cabwhp.org
