Meet a Mom & Her Darling Little Sweet Potato!: Ty'shaye & Zaria Monique Douglas

Black Infant Health – what an excellent program which has helped to empower me during my pregnancy. I gave birth on 9/20/21 to a beautiful baby girl – Zaria Monique Douglas. She was a whooping 9lbs 15.8oz. She makes girl #3 in the Douglas family and I’m so grateful we’ve been blessed with little girls.

A Week for Honoring Black Maternal Health

This year will mark the fifth anniversary of the Black Maternal Health Week (BMHW) campaign that starts next week from April 11 to 17th. The week was founded by the Black Mamas Matter Alliance (BMMA), to align with the United States’ recognition of National Minority Health Month each April. The month-long initiative strives to advance health equity across the country on behalf of all racial and ethnic minorities. During National Minority Health Month, the campaign and activities for BMHW serve to bring awareness and amplify the voices of Black Mamas and center the values and traditions of the reproductive and birth justice movements.
