The need for Black maternal health care has never been more pressing. According to the CDC, in New York City alone, Black women are nine times more likely to die of a pregnancy-related cause than white women, and their rate of infant mortality is more than three times higher. It's why the beauty brand, Carol’s Daughter, and the maternal health non-profit organization, the Mama Glow Foundation are on a mission to expand access to Doula care for Black birthing people and babies when they are most vulnerable – before, during, and after birth.
As part of this, over the next three years, they have committed $225,000 to fund Doula services and provide Doula education grants for aspiring birth workers. Helping to lead the charge for public awareness and advocacy for Black mothers, Carol’s Daughter and the Mama Glow Foundation urge you to learn more and get involved in their Love Delivered program.
The Love Delivered program has engaged over 4,500 advocates in its second year. To join Carol's Daughter in the fight for Black maternal health care, head to carolsdaughter.com/lovedelivered and follow along at @CarolsDaughter and @MamaGlow on Instagram.
