About the Event

EmpowerHer: Navigating Black Maternal Health

Join us for an empowering event focused on addressing the challenges and disparities faced by Black mothers in maternal health. This in-person event will take place on Saturday, January 27, 2024 at 11:00 AM (Eastern Standard Time).

Location: 2055 N Senate Ave, Indianapolis, IN 46202

At MelaMama Maternal Wellness, we believe in creating a supportive community where Black mothers can share their experiences, access resources, and gain knowledge to navigate their maternal health journey. This event aims to raise awareness about the unique struggles faced by Black women during pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum.

Through engaging expert-led discussions, we will explore topics such as prenatal care, mental health, advocacy, and more. Our goal is to provide a safe space for Black mothers to connect, learn, and empower themselves with the tools needed to advocate for their own well-being.

Come and be a part of this important conversation. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of Black mothers and ensure they receive the support and care they deserve.

This event will have a panel discussion, community resources, and mom giveaways.
