MOMentum Park "where moms come first and every moment matters"
We reach moms, their babies and families exactly where they are thanks to our integration of medicine, public health and TECHNOLOGY. With your generous support, we can grow stronger, healthier, thriving moms and babies across the nation and solve the US Maternal and Infant Mortality/Morbidity Crisis.
The US has the highest rates of maternal & infant mortality (compared to peer nations). Longstanding racial & ethnic disparities are profound and disproportionately impact marginalized communities of color and populations receiving Medicaid benefits.
MOMentum Park "where moms come first and every moment matters" integrates medicine, public health, advocacy and TECHNOLOGY to solve the US Maternal and Infant Mortality/Morbidity crisis. We advance EQUITY & JUSTICE through TECH enabled education & programs directing resources & efforts to the highest impacted communities.
Our innovative team of physicians, public health leaders, and TECH innovators are committed to optimizing the health, lives and wellbeing of moms to be and their babies. We transform our passion into purpose through synergistic and impactful partnerships.
Momentum Park supports diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility. Our employees, contractors, populations served, and partners represent diverse backgrounds all aligned with our mission to advance justice and equity in pregnancy and birth outcomes.
We embrace the tenets of trust-based philanthropy into practice, including the belief that people who are closest to the experience of race, class, and gender injustice are best suited to devise solutions to counter it. Therefore, our internal teams predominately represent the populations we serve. We promote a welcoming, anti-racist and harassment free work-environment that supports mental health, well-being and work-life balance emphasizing self-care, dignity and respect.
Advancing racial justice and birth equity requires multiple invested stakeholders. To this regard, we welcome partnerships with all persons, organizations and entities of varying races, gender, age, sexual orientation, ability/disability, religion, marital & parental status, socioeconomic and veteran status.
On June 24, 2022, the Supreme Court’s (SCOTUS) ruling on Dobbs vs. Jackson Women’s Health Organization overturned Roe V. Wade. The decision will have a longstanding impact on the rights of women to choose when, if and how to start and/or expand their families. Lower income, rural and women of color will undoubtedly be most impacted by the decision.
The SCOTUS landmark decision represents another systemic barrier impacting women’s health and perpetuating racial & ethnic disparities. We at MOMentum Park, “where moms come first and every moment matters,” will ALWAYS advocate for the rights of all women to make the best decisions for their individual circumstances in partnership with their trusted healthcare providers and chosen “friends and family”.
In 2020, the world saw first-hand the inequities Black Americans still suffer in the United States due to long standing racism and injustice. Police brutality, discrimination, racial profiling and even COVID19 disproportionately impact Black Americans.
We stand in solidarity with advocates and organizations against bigotry, violence, discrimination, injustices and systemic racism.
We embrace diversity, inclusion and equity as reflected in our diverse team and board members. We remember Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, David McAtee, Tony McDade, Sandra Bland, Trevon Martin, Philando Castile and countless other victims of injustices across the nation.
