Look for Black Mothers United new website. It’s coming soon!
Black Mothers United is a free program that offers support and education to pregnant African-American women of Sacramento County.
The program pairs expectant mothers with a Personal Advocate who will be available to provide support and guidance through their pregnancy and up to 4 months after baby is born, connecting mom and family to much needed resources. Clients of the program will be provided with transportation (as needed) to medical and pregnancy-related appointments, in-home visitations, and a support group for pregnant and parenting women.
Our Support Group meetings are scheduled to occur the 2nd Monday of each month at The Center of Community Health and Well Being, Inc.’s office. Activities include:
- Pregnancy and childbirth education
- Parenting skills
- Self-esteem building exercises
- Strong focus on stress management
To be eligible for the program, African American women must be pregnant and residents of Sacramento County.
For more information or to join the program, please contact Kenya Nealy-Fagbemi, Senior Personal Advocate at 916 558-4812 ext. 217.
We can’t wait to help you have the best pregnancy possible…because our babies matter!
