According to the CDC Black women are 243% more likely to die from pregnancy related causes. The majority of these deaths are preventable. Black Mamas ATX is committed to ensuring that Black women survive and thrive before, during, and after childbirth. 

Our approach to addressing this epidemic is holistic. We are educating and engaging the community by employing and training community health workers, doulas and organizers, advocating for policy and systems change, and providing direct services to Black mothers. 

Currently, we offer the following support to Black mamas  free of charge, regardless of income or health insurance status:

  • Prenatal and Postpartum Home Visits
  • Birth and Postpartum Doula Support
  • Sister Circle Support Groups
