Welcome to the Black Maternal Health Expo at Babypalooza!
In a world where everyone deserves equal care, understanding, and support, Babypalooza’s Black Maternal Health Expo powered by NOWIncluded aims to shine a spotlight on the unique needs and experiences of Black mothers and mothers-to-be. We have curated this expo within the setting of the Babypalooza Baby Expo to focus on the pressing issues surrounding Black maternal health.
Why Focus on Black Maternal Health?
Statistics reflect a stark reality:
- Mortality Rates: In the United States, Black women are 3 times more likely to die from pregnancy-related complications than white women.
- Preterm Births: The preterm birth rate among Black women is about 50% higher than the rate among white women.
- Access to Care: Black mothers often face challenges in accessing quality healthcare, which can lead to further complications.
Babypalooza’s mission with the Black Maternal Health Expo is to bridge this gap by providing a platform for education, awareness, empowerment, and connection.
