Black Maternal Health Week

April 11, 2023 kicks off the 6th annual Black Maternal Health Week 2022 (#BMHW23). Founded by BMMA, Black Maternal Health Week is a week of awareness, activism, and

community-building aimed at amplifying the voices of Black Mamas, bringing visibility to Black-led maternal health initiatives, and centering the values and traditions of the reproductive and birth justice movements.

Explore the toolkit BMMA has shared that highlights data regarding mortality, mental health, breastfeeding and more.

BMHW is held annually in April during National Minority Health Month. BMHW23 is, above all, a week dedicated to educating and advocating for Black Mamas.
