Healthier Babies Through Education and Support

Does it actually take a village to raise a child? Turns out, it does. Infant mortality is a heartbreaking subject. It’s also not disappearing, especially in the Black community. In this episode, we look at one of the solutions: Moms2B. An Ohio State program that helps babies reach their first birthdays. Hear from a mother who successfully completed the program and the doctor who runs it.
