At The Wellness Flow, we have always placed a large emphasis on improving women's health, specifically maternal healthcare, and are continually looking for ways to do more.
While the maternal mortality rate has decreased overall in the United States, the CDC notes that Black mothers are adversely effected - experiencing higher death rates than any other community.
Because of this, we've decided to align with Black Mamas Matter - an organization focusing on advancing Black maternal healthcare during and after pregnancy. As specified on their site, they're specifically working to :
PROVIDE TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE AND TRAINING
CONVENE LEADERS IN CONVERSATION
CULTIVATE A NETWORK OF BLACK WOMEN LEADERS
BUILD POWER USING INNOVATIVE STRATEGIES
We’re making ongoing donations to this organization in hopes to provide the necessary maternal healthcare Black mothers deserve while decreasing the death rate caused by birth complications.
And you can help to! By simply working out with us, you are helping mothers get a chance at life and the essential care they deserve.
