A Mother’s Justice

A Holistic Approach To Reducing Maternal Mortality And Low Infant Birth Weight Through Good Nutrition And Self-Care

A Holistic Approach To Reducing Maternal Mortality And Low Infant Birth Weight Through Good Nutrition And Self-Care

Black and Brown expectant mothers die at higher rates. Billions of dollars are spent on maternal care but not in the sacrificial zones. Due to undeniable systemic racism, classism and lack of whole food access. Disproportionately this problem affects the women in Hillside, Mosby, Gilpin, Fairfield, Whitcomb and Creighton Courts.

We offer a culturally sensitive 16-week nutrition education curriculum on how to eat the best for less, food combining and food preparation along with water therapy and personal self-care. A Mother’s Justice has a holistic approach to self-care and advocacy by providing Birthing Plan journals for logging vitals which will include knowing what to ask care providers about  pregnancy and vitals. Blood pressure and blood sugar information will be documented in the journal by the participants for personal records.

We review the journals and track the information to determine the progress of vitals. We also distribute fresh whole foods and serve once a week to participants in the program.
