The Pittsburgh Business Group on Health continues to work on the Maternal Infant Health Equity (MIHE) Project. We are committed to our initiative to tackle health inequity, advocate for anti-racism, and to educate on social determinants of health. (https://pbghpa.org/bridges-4-health-equity/) With the idea that employers’ responsibility continues into the communities, our MIHE Project has created a platform for employers to hear from those in the community making advances to improvements in the health equity space, in particular with birthing people and infants. PBGH acts as a needed conduit between the employers and the community.
This past year, we held virtual meetings with our employer members to hear from leaders of organizations in the maternal/infant health space. One meeting included Aleta Heard, founder of Masters of Maternity. (Masters of Maternity – Where Moms come to Master Motherhood – Everything you need in one place!) They are dedicated to “introducing a new model of integrated maternal care & improving the motherhood journey, regardless of our differences, and leveraging innovative technologies to it…providing an equal opportunity for a quality experience to all moms.”
One of these technologies includes their directory of Doulas posted on their website. You can filter with two different options:
- Specific criteria (type, certifications, specialties, etc.): Doulas – Masters of Maternity
- Location: Find a Maternal Specialist Near You – Masters of Maternity
