Maternal Mortality and Morbidity Advocates
What We Do
As advocates to eliminate maternal mortality and severe morbidity, the coalition’s overarching goal is to provide a home and platform for the patient voice to actively engage in efforts to make childbirth safer in the United States. The coalition provides training and tools to prepare “champions for change.”
We look at cross-cutting issues such as quality and consistency of healthcare delivery, patient-provider communications, racial disparities, inadequate research funding, and other leading contributors to adverse outcomes in pregnancy and the postpartum period.
Who We Are
MoMMA’s Voices is a national coalition of patient organizations and individuals with “lived experiences” – or those that represent them – using their voice to reduce maternal complications in pregnancy and the postpartum period.
We invite all those who experienced, or whose loved one experienced, any of the leading causes of death, near misses and severe morbidity such as preeclampsia, postpartum hemorrhage, amniotic fluid embolism, placenta accreta, cardiovascular disease, mental health and other medical complications of pregnancy.
Total Reach of Coalition Organizations
The purpose of MoMMA’s Voices is to amplify patient and family voices - especially those who have been historically marginalized - ensuring they are equipped and activated as partners to improve maternal health outcomes.
Momma’s voices are engaged as partners wherever maternal health improvements are needed.
Our abiding philosophy is to ensure this coalition comprises patients, survivors and those with the lived experience, rather than healthcare providers. As patient perspective is under-represented in policy, media, professional medical societies, and other agenda-setting conversations.
