Birthing Project USA is the only national African American maternal and child health program in this country. We are a volunteer effort to encourage better birth outcomes by providing practical support to women during pregnancy and for one year after the birth of their children.
... About BPUSA

Our innovative programs allow us to identify our babies before they are born, keep a watchful eye on them during their childhood, invite them to participate with their mothers in our risk reduction programs when they are in 6th and 7th grades and participate in our Academy of Dreams during their high school years.  We also provide guidance and support to their fathers. 
...Birthing Project Model Programs

Every 2 minutes, 60 women around the world die in childbirth. Join us in a historic mission to save our sisters from dying.
