Black Maternal Resources in the Louisville Area


Maternal mortality rates are highest among Black women. With such poor maternal outcomes for women of color, it’s no surprise that our community also has the worst outcomes for breastfeeding. We compiled a list of some local and national resources for Black women in hopes of providing information for women seeking community and medical resources through motherhood.
