Maternal Health

At Community HealthEd, we believe maternal health is public health. Our Maternal Health team plans and implements data-driven public health education campaings that aim to promote women's physical and mental health before, during, and after pregnancy. Thus far, our projects have focused on connecting women with quality prenatal care early on in their pregnancy and combating folate deficiency among gestational-aged women.
