Safe and respectful maternity care is a fundamental human right. We strive to engage in efforts that will lead to long-lasting health improvements for every mother, everywhere.

Take action today

Join us in urging our legislators to take bold action for maternal health!

Action is needed to make quality, respectful, and equitable maternity care a reality for all mothers and birthing people in the United States. Let’s make sure our representatives fight for key maternity care policies, such as:

Ensuring that all 50 states provide Medicaid coverage for a full year postpartum, and
Passing the Black Maternal Health Momnibus Act, which includes investments in community-based, equity-focused policies.

Act today to ensure that Congress fights for key policies for our country’s mothers, birthing people, and families. 


The Maternal Health Advocacy Toolkit

Maternal health advocacy can take many forms: contacting your elected officials, educating your community, hosting a town hall or even sharing your story. With so many ways to make an impact, it can be overwhelming to know where to start or what advocacy tactic would best fit your unique skills and motivation.  

That’s why we’ve just released our Advocacy Toolkit, an interactive guide to help give shape to your maternal health advocacy. Whatever your advocacy journey looks like, we hope this guide serves and inspires you. Because, right now, it is more urgent than ever before that we pass transformative legislation, support community-led organizations and raise awareness about the state of maternal health.
