Oklahoma ranks 47th lowest nationally in the health of women and children and 46th in infant deaths. Tulsa County statistics echo those of the state or in some cases are higher. Research shows that the major contributor to poor outcomes of mothers and infants is because women are not healthy prior to becoming pregnant.
We provide education, skills and support to assist non-pregnant women of childbearing age, their families and future generations to achieve optimal health and wellness. By doing so, the goal of this evidence based program is to decrease Oklahoma’s and Tulsa County’s high rates of infant prematurity and deaths as well as pregnancy related complication and deaths of mothers.
