Black babies in Detroit die at twice the rate of other babies in Michigan. Moms in Detroit face barriers to accessing quality prenatal care, social isolation, and stress that can put their babies at a higher risk of being born too small or too early.
Together, we can make a difference! SisterFriends Detroit is founded on the belief that:
- We can take care of each other. I am my Sister’s Sister.
- Mentorship, care, connection, love, and belonging make a difference.
- We are leaders in our own lives and communities.
- Together, we can create a culture of care to help pregnant women, babies, and families thrive.
SisterFriends Detroit is a volunteer effort to support healthier moms and babies. SisterFriends Detroit provides support to pregnant moms, and their families until their baby’s first birthday.
