What If You Could Change The World…
One Family At A Time Through – The Greener Birth Initiative
The purpose of The InTune Mother Project (TIM) program is to improve and promote healthier outcomes for women and babies, and to reduce disparities in perinatal health. At the core of this culturally centered program, participants will have become proficient and competent, with the knowledge and skills necessary to experience: • comprehensive community based perinatal support • provide personalized support for women and families in the stages of preconception pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period • breastfeeding education and support, as well as early recognition of nature based contraception.
>>>There is a time, when we have to identify, with problems head on. We started the #WeGrowHumans campaign because WE CARE!<<<
- WE CARE: That Black/African American women are 3 to 4 times more likely to have adverse outcomes than other populations in childbirth in the state of Oklahoma.
- WE CARE: That Black/African American babies are 2 to 3 times more likely to die than babies born of other populations in the state of Oklahoma.
- WE CARE: That Women and babies RIGHT HERE IN THE UNITED STATED OF AMERICA are dying during and after childbirth, PERIOD! Maternal mortality is unacceptably high and we have a plan to aid in reducing that.
Did you know that about 800 women die from pregnancy or childbirth-related complications around the world every day. In 2013, 289,000 women died during and following pregnancy and childbirth. Almost all of these deaths occurred in low-resourced settings, and most could have been prevented.
