Tips On Black Maternal Health Week, April 11th-17th, With Renaissance Women’s Group

Black Maternal Health Week is April 11th through the 17th, 2024. Dr. Alice Tong and Dr. Victoria Wheeler, OB/GYNs with Renaissance Women’s Group, stopped by Studio 512 to discuss the importance of medical education and awareness during this week.

Black Maternal Health Week was started by the Black Mamas Matter Alliance. BMHW is a week-long campaign to build awareness, activism, and community-building​ to amplify ​the voices, perspectives and lived experiences of Black Mamas and birthing people. The week is intentionally held during National Minority Health Month and begins on April 11th annually to join dozens of global organizations in marking this day as International Day for Maternal Health and Rights – an opportunity to advocate for the elimination of maternal mortality globally. The activities and conversations hosted throughout the week intentionally center the values and traditions of the reproductive and birth justice movements. ​

“At Renaissance Women’s Group, our team of OB/GYNs, nurse practitioners and physician’s assistants work together to provide patients with the best care possible. We treat women in all stages of life, including women seeking effective family planning methods, patients looking for help on the path to pregnancy and women experiencing menopause.”
