HealthConnect One is proud to release our annual report Birthing Hope During Turbulent Times. Despite the pandemic, HealthConnect One continues to partner with Black, Brown, and Indigenous communities to develop peer-to-peer programs that decrease maternal and infant mortality and increase bonding, breastfeeding, maternal support networks and early learning for infants.
“In this critical moment, women, birthing people, and babies are center stage, as their health outcomes are indicators of national, state and community health,” said Dr. Dillion, HC One Executive Director. “We must ensure that the foundation of life, the first 1,000 days, is healthy.”
This year, we impacted 2,299 birth workers across the country, providing trainings like our community-based doula replication for the African American Breastfeeding Network in Milwaukee, WI, and a birth doula training for SisterWeb in San Francisco, CA.
