Peer to Peer Connection

At the foundation of the Resilient Mom platform is the cultivation of trust and the building of both a non-medical and medical network for every pregnant woman of color to confidently amplify her voice and express her needs during her entire pregnancy and postpartum.

Resilient Mom suggests the use of a peer-to-peer program by our partner hospitals that links under-resourced pregnant women of color in the community with peer counselors who have lived through the experience. Systematic reviews of peer support programs have found them to be effective in improving the overall health and well-being of the individual and to increase appropriate medical care.
