Black Maternal Health Week April 11 - 17, 2023

Our Bodies Belong to Us:

Restoring Black Autonomy and Joy!

Black Maternal Health Week (BMHW) was founded and led by the Black Mamas Matter Alliance in 2018. BMHW is a national 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.

  • Enhance community organizing on Black maternal health.
