We are Abide, a team dedicated to birth justice
Abide Women’s Health Services exists to improve birth outcomes in communities with the lowest quality of care. These are the problems we address:
We exist to combat disparities in Black maternal and infant health
According to data from the March of Dimes, Black women are 3-4x more likely than white women to die from pregnancy-related causes —
even when these causes are preventable.
According to the Department of Minority Health, Black infants have 2-3x the rates of infant mortality than their white counterparts.
Black parents and their children deserve justice. That's why we exist.
