Member Spotlight by Holistic Pregnancy and Wellness
Provide us with a brief summary of your business’ services
Holistic Pregnancy and Wellness Services aims to significantly reduce the rate of maternal / fetal deaths in minority communities. In the United States, there are about 700 women who die during childbirth or within the year after due to conditions such as a pulmonary embolism, high blood pressure, weakened heart muscle, etc. Among these women, the rates are significantly higher for African American Women and Women of Color. Our company plans to provide proper education on the diseases and that are prominent to Black Women, African American Women, and Women of Color. We will provide access to resources to reduce the mortality rate in minority communities. In addition to our wellness services, we plan to address and offer resources to help prevent and treat postpartum depression (PPD). Each year 1 in 7 women suffer from postpartum depression. Postpartum depression goes beyond the typical “baby blues” and in worse cases, can lead to neglect or harm of the child. By identifying and addressing signs of PPD, we hope to significantly reduce or eliminate these occurrences.
