Why We Do What We Do
Stress, healthcare challenges, systemic issues, and lack of communal support contribute greatly to these pregnancy outcomes, regardless of the woman’s socioeconomic, educational, or health status.
About 3 in 5 of these tragic deaths are preventable—especially when consistent community support, education, and attentive medical care are equitably offered to all women.
We’re Giving a Voice to the Need — and Finding Solutions
Black, Native, teen, and justice-involved people are much more likely to experience systemic barriers to quality health care before, during, and after pregnancy. They are also more likely to face economic hurdles and have chronic health conditions that affect their conception, pregnancies, and births.
At TBEI, we are changing this trend for the better. We’re creating a variety of local, community-focused programs and strategies to create equitable, healthy, joyous outcomes for all parents and babies in Tulsa.
