Black Maternal Health Week – Pregnancy and Birth
April 16, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
UofL Health providers and staff with UofL Hospital – Center for Women & Infants will participate in Black Maternal Health Week events with the Louisville Coalition for Black Maternal Health, April 11 through 17!
The Louisville Coalition for Black Maternal Health will recognize the week with virtual activities open to the community. The annual event was created by the Black Mamas Matter Alliance (BMMA) to create awareness, start conversations, encourage community organizing, and to center the voices of Black Mamas and birthing people.
Today’s Event: Black Birth Joy – Join us as we share birth stories, tips and information around pregnancy and birth as Black people. Together we will lift up ancestral methods of birthing and parenting passed down in our families and culture. We will discuss resilience in the face of trauma and institutions that fail to adequately serve us.
Additional information on each event, as well as sign up information is available on the coalition’s Facebook page (@CBMHLou).
