Project Description

Democratizing Maternal Health

 

Mommy Brain is the only holistic maternal wellness platform for moms and birthing people to receive accessible support to pregnancy + postpartum education, expert-led guidance, and a diverse community of peers. Our mission is to democratize maternal health, making it both affordable and inclusive.

Maternal care is expensive and the average birthing person doesn't have access to the tools and resources to be their own best advocates.   

Every two minutes a woman dies due to preventable causes in pregnancy or childbirth worldwide. While in the U.S., the maternal mortality rate has consistently increased -- making it the only industrialized nation to see rising rates. There isn't equitable healthcare access – whether you look at it by race, geography, or socioeconomic status. 

 

There are three major contributing factors to the problem that we want to highlight: the cost, the lack of education (and sometimes misinformation), and access to treatment.

1. The physical act of birthing will cost you thousands of dollars out of pocket WITH insurance. And that's if you have a birth without complications. Now factor in "extras" like a birthing class, which averages $100, and in many places is much higher. Same for seeing a therapist or specialist such as a lactation consultant or sleep coach. This isn't feasible for the majority of the population.

 

2. The lack of knowledge on what to expect and what your rights are also leaves many vulnerable to unnecessary interventions and bullying. Especially Black and brown women. Black and Indigenous moms are 3-4x more likely to die in pregnancy or childbirth.

3. Inability to physically get to appointments or take a class due to lack of transportation, work demands, or no child care.

 

The Mommy Brain Difference

 

Mommy Brain is solving this problem by providing a holistic solution to the maternal health care crisis that includes:

  • Affordable care and guidance from our team of therapists, coaches, and parenting specialists.
  • Access to pregnancy and postpartum education through our content, digital workshops and discussions.
  • A safe space to virtually connect with a diverse community of peers and experts.

Mommy Brain is for birthing people and mothers looking for expert support, community, and resources that are accessible and affordable, without sacrificing quality.

 

Why I Created Mommy Brain

 

You can make a difference

Affordable mental and physical care is something we should all have access to. With your help, Mommy Brain will be able to expand our services. I’m raising $50,000 to fund the complete development of our video resource library, to create a vetted directory of diverse maternal health providers, and to expand our services by allowing us to hire more specialists, as well as marketing and business development.

Thank you so much for your support in helping Mommy Brain close the gap in maternal health care!

The Campaign FAQs

How will you use these funds? 

These funds will be used for the development of our video resource library, specifically:

  • studio space for shooting content 
  • hiring pregnancy and postpartum experts to teach and guide the sessions
  • hiring graphic designer and videographer for content creation and video editing 
  • hiring marketing and business development staff

Additionally, it will allow us to expand our services for community members by hiring more specialists, such as therapists, coaches, and parenting specialists.

What if I can't support monetarily? 

We understand and appreciate you learning more about Mommy Brain and the work we're doing. While no amount is too small to contribute, another helpful way to support us is by sharing the campaign on your social platforms or by word-of-mouth. 

Who's behind Mommy Brain?

Our Founder & CEO, Ravelle Worthington, is an Afro-Caribbean and Asian mom of 3 kids ages 6 and under. Mommy Brain is operated by a diverse team of parents, of whom 75% are people of color.
