The selected recipient from our most recent meeting on 4/16/18 is Birthing Beautiful Communities (BBC) which provides doula services to low income African-American women to help combat the high infant morality rates in the community. BBC was established in 2014 with a mission to address and improve the systemic and community structures that lead to poor birth outcomes for African-American women through culture, education, advocacy, support and engagement. It holistically supports pregnant women to deliver full-term healthy babies, and in achieving equitable birth outcomes. The doulas who deliver the service live and work in the same communities as their clients. There is no fee for the service for women in economically depressed neighborhoods. BBC partners with many community organizations including University Hospital, Metro and the Nurse Family Partnership.
