We are a culturally specific pregnancy care collaborative working to improve birth outcomes through advocacy, education, health planning, and community engagement.

Ultimately, we are people serving people. We are a team. We are board members, advocates, health professionals and colleagues. We know the communities we serve, and the many factors that can affect African American parents before and during their pregnancies. Along with our team, we have local and national resources to assist with overall pregnancy health and many issues along the way.

Board of Directors

The Healthy Black Pregnancy Board of Directors serves as a critical community voice for the pregnancy health of native born African American parents and children in Minnesota. Board members share their gifts in service to Healthy Black Pregnancies by providing expert knowledge, both professionally and personally, across their communities, and providing valuable connections to local and national resources. The Board of Directors is the governing body for Healthy Black Pregnancies. The Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) and other funders provide financial support to Healthy Black Pregnancies through the ICHRP initiative.

The Board of Directors is made up of volunteers including, but not limited to:
