Black Maternal Health Week (April 11 – 17, 2022)

Save the Date: The fifth annual national Black Maternal Health Week (BMHW) campaign, April 11 – 17, founded and led by the Black Mamas Matter Alliance, will be a week of awareness, activism, and community building intended to:

  • Deepen the national conversation about Black maternal health in the US;
  • Amplify community-driven policy, research, and care solutions;
  • Center the voices of Black Mamas, women, families, and stakeholders;
  • Provide a national platform for Black-led entities and efforts on maternal health, birth and reproductive justice; and
  • Enhance community organizing on Black maternal health.

The campaign and activities for Black Maternal Health Week serve to amplify the voices of Black mamas and center the values and traditions of the reproductive and birth justice movements.

This movement is led by Black Mamas Matter and Breastfeed Durham is proud to support this important work.
