Alliance Webinar on Supporting the Perinatal Workforce in Policy and Practice

The perinatal workforce plays an indispensable role in ensuring the well-being and survival of pregnant people and their babies throughout pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum. However, systemic issues and social disparities continue to persist, leaving many birthing people, particularly Black and Indigenous communities, without access to the quality maternal health care they deserve. 

This session will discuss policy recommendations outlined in Black Mamas Matter Alliance’s comprehensive, issues and values-based policy agenda titled Black Mamas Matter: In Policy and Practice, and strategies to better equip, support and advance the Black maternal, reproductive, and perinatal workforce. 

This webinar is part of an Alliance series of co-hosted webinars on community-driven solutions, supporting the maternal health workforce, and overburdened and under-resourced populations—with partners such as Elephant Circle, RH Impact (formerly the National Birth Equity Collaborative), and Black Mamas Matter Alliance. Learn about the others in the series on our webinar homepage.
