Why is giving birth in the U.S. surprisingly deadly?

It's alarming. Apalling. Incomprehensible. What's happening? Why would a country that leads the world in advancements, wealth and developments, experience such perils when it comes to the health of it's women? Women of all backgrounds are dying although black women, in particular, are more at risk. Join the conversation! Because healthy babies need health parents!

Discuss the problem and the solution. We have the power to make a change. And it starts with a conversation.

When healthy conversations happen, loving change blossoms.

For 2019, Arise REG has selected Mamatoto Village and other like organizations that seek to provide optimal healthcare for pregnant women and postpartum as a beneficiary of events, drives and giving. Proceeds from this event will be donated to Mamatoto Village.

Blossom is a Sunday Dinner Series occuring monthly to discuss issues that negatively impact our communities and nation at large. The goal here is simply put: create a safe environment to communicate about societal pitfalls so that we can build a better, stronger community for generations to come. We aim to be solution oriented, complete with action steps that we all can take on a daily basis. Interested in having your voice heard? Join the conversation!
