Urban Baby Beginnings Helps Moms Thrive

Urban Baby Beginnings Community Cares Prenatal Clinic, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, has opened at 1704 West Laburunum Avenue to change the approach to solving low birth outcomes for women in poverty through collaborative efforts, regardless of their income level.

In 2013, Virginia Department of Health reported that 20.9 percent of minority women in the Metro Richmond area had babies that were less than 5.5 pounds in birth weight. Additionally, 14.3 infant deaths per 1,000 live births were experienced. Since 2013, these statistics have not dramatically improved. 

The Clinic provides a network of licensed midwives, registered nurses, doulas and educators offering vital support services to alleviate the challenges facing mothers-to-be that can lead to increased infant mortality. From group-based discussions and medical, nutritional and psychological support, moms will find the individualized services they need for healthy birth outcomes. Transportation and childcare are available during clinic hours.
