Meet your new Pregnancy Coach
We match each of our mothers-to-be with a pregnancy coach to develop a personalized care plan designed to meet their needs.Get Started
Our pregnancy coaches provide an experience-based perspective and nurturing approach to coaching. They consist of mothers and grandmothers, specifically from the same communities we serve here in Sacramento County. The coach's ability to relate to our client's cultural experiences creates trusted relationships. The personalized care plans they make address your needs and concerns while identifying strengths. The trained coaches offer prenatal and postnatal services. They provide transportation to appointments, health education, referrals for mental health services, referrals for social services, and drug/alcohol-related programs. They can assist you in any moment of crisis as they have flexible schedules and offer 24/7 assistance. Their dedication to advocating on behalf of you at medical appointments while also making sure you feel comfortable to advocate for yourself improves your pregnancy experience and the overall health of Black mothers by empowering them to act so they don't become a statistic. Though they are currently connecting with clients via telehealth due to the COVID-19 crisis, they still conduct services at their most total capacity. Check them out below.
