- Strategies for pregnant folks on advocating for care, specifically pregnant folks from Black communities
- Awareness for the connection between lack of appropriate and timely care with maternal morbidity and infant loss
- Education on how to establish a team of caregivers from the range of options available to pregnant folks including nurse midwives, doulas, families, and community members
- Ways to address provider bias and racial microaggressions produced by structural racism in medical care and the existing barriers to receiving pre- and post-natal care
