Hearing Native Mothers – A Tribal Discussion Session on a Campaign to Support Healthy AI/AN Pregnancies and Maternal Health
Mothers are cherished, sacred members of American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) communities, and hold distinct roles of nourishing, teaching, and leading their families. For many, pregnancy can be an exciting, joyous time. However, while rare, too many mothers die each year from complications related to pregnancy, and AIAN people are disproportionately affected. NIHB is working with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to better understand and amplify the ways in which AI/AN mothers, partners, caregivers, and community members can best keep mothers and babies healthy and safe during pregnancy and beyond. It is essential to work together to protect Native families and communities.
Join the National Indian Health Board and the CDC for a special discussion session on a new campaign segment aimed to support AI/AN healthy pregnancies and postpartum health, based on the existing Hear Her campaign. During the session, CDC speakers will provide a brief overview of the campaign. We will then provide time for Tribal participants to provide input on the proposed campaign themes and materials, and best strategies for reaching Tribal communities.
