Babies in Playroom

Who We Are

We envision a world where all people have the same chance for a healthy and happy transition to parenthood, while all babies have the opportunity to thrive.

 

Mission:  Save the lives of Black birthing people and their infants and improve health outcomes by increasing access to critical services and support.

​EBB is a 501(c)(3) designated public charity. All donations are tax-deductible.

It Takes A Village

Every single person deserves a healthy start to life, both physically and mentally. When parents can meet their babies’ needs on a consistent basis, their children have the opportunity to not just survive -- but to thrive.​ However, when we look at the reality of pregnancy, birth, and postpartum in the United States, we see racial inequity exists from the moment a baby is conceived.

 

We want to change that.

So many talented individuals and agencies in our community are already working hard to give Black parents and babies an exceptional start. Equity Before Birth (EBB) brings those preexisting silos together, bolsters them with support, and leverages them to wrap individual Black families in exceptional care throughout pregnancy, birth, and postpartum.

What does this look like? In a nutshell, EBB is fighting racial inequity by providing paid parental leave opportunities and increasing access to care options for qualifying Black parents-to-be.  Our donors and partners enable us to provide sponsorship that helps parents experience less stress during and after pregnancy, increase baby bonding time, and promotes all-around better health for the entire family.​

We all have a role to play in creating a more equitable society and eliminating health disparities.  It truly takes a village to raise a child.  Will you join us in wrapping families around support to improve maternal health outcomes?
