About this Event

Long Beach Black Infant Health is hosting a Mommy to Be: Swag Bag Social!

Join us for an evening full of information, resources, mingling and fun for pregnant Black women in the Long Beach community. All attendees will receive a complimentary swag bag, refreshments, and will be eligible for giveaways and opportunity drawings. This is a family friendly event and you are welcome to bring children with you.

The Long Beach Black Infant Health Program aims to address the problem of poor birth outcomes affecting African American women and their infants by encouraging a commitment to self-love and healthy living through our group intervention and individual client services. Our goal is to increase healthy birth outcomes and ultimately improve survival rates for African American infants and mothers. BIH groups offer fun and interesting activities that help women to gain support from one another, learn what to expect while pregnant, nurture and bond with their new babies and receive infant care tips.
