"Pregnant African Americans and their families can receive help by contacting D.I.V.A. Moms (Dynamic Involved Valued African American Moms) at Minnesota Community Care, Nubian Moms at Open Cities Health Center, Iya Empowerment Circle at NorthPoint Health & Wellness Center, Inc., and The African American Babies Coalition at Wilder Foundation.

The programs, for U.S. born African Americans, provide access to culturally-focused personal care navigators and community resources to help guide families through the health care system during pregnancy. Programs host performing arts, speakers, documentaries, and other activities to prepare families for healthy pregnancies and births.
