A WORD FROM LISA AND LATHAM
Be an Advocate
LOVE DELIVERED will empower, support and equip Black birthing people and the greater community to advocate for their health and wellness by providing expanded access to doula services, trainings for doulas, and resources for families, birth workers, partners, and allies to be well-informed in supporting positive birthing experiences. Black Maternal Health impacts us all whether you are the person giving birth or part of their village and we can all do something to help eradicate the crisis - get involved.
The Mama Glow Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit organization committed to advancing reproductive justice through education, advocacy and the arts. Founded by world renown doula, Latham Thomas, the foundation is an extension of Mama Glow, a global maternal health company that is transforming the landscape of reproductive health through their game-changing professional doula training programs and bespoke doula services. With doulas located across the USA and 6 continents Mama Glow is educating the next generation of birth workers that serve on the front lines in service of women and families.
LOVE DELIVERED ANNOUNCEMENTS
In the United States, Black birthing people are disproportionately impacted by maternal mortality and poor birth outcomes. That is why through the Love Delivered initiative, we are actively addressing this ongoing crisis and committing $225,000 over the next 3 years to positively impact birth outcomes for Black families in need by funding doula services and providing doula education grants for aspiring birth workers.
Starting December 7, Black birthing people can apply for a grant to be matched with a Mama Glow - trained Doula for complimentary doula support. This grant is accessible to pregnant or recently postpartum applicants located in the following cities: NYC (Metro-Area), Miami, Los Angeles, Atlanta, and Washington, D.C. with other major cities to follow.
