About Her! Short story

Black Mothers United is a comprehensive program offering pregnancy support and case management services. We have been serving African American pregnant women in Sacramento County since 2013 with pride, diligence, and dedication. We empower women by providing them the resources to receive risk-appropriate maternal care. Research shows that African American women’s birth outcomes improve when they have support and access to unbiased health professionals and mental health services. The pregnancy coach services, doula care, and lactation support clients receive aid in reducing their overall maternal stress.  Our unique approach to sisterhood coupled with advocacy is the gateway to African American women’s healthy birthing outcomes.
