Maternal mortality is a public health crisis in the United States and racial disparities threaten Black lives at a rate 3-4 times higher than their white neighbors.
It’s time to end the crisis. Together, we can save our mothers.
The Chicago Collaborative for Maternal Health is a broad coalition that will build awareness, foster partnerships, prioritize the expertise of families with lived experiences, and drive quality of care.
CCMH is currently recruiting pregnant or parenting people who reside in Austin, Chatham, Greater Grand Crossing, East Garfield Park, West Garfield Park, and Englewood, and have personal experience with complications during pregnancy, labor and delivery, or postpartum. Individuals selected will receive $45.00 for participating in the focus group.
