MOMentum Park "where moms come first and every moment matters"
The mission at MOMentum Park means we are committed to optimizing the health, lives, and wellbeing of expectant mothers and their children through the integration of medicine, public health, policy, and technology. Our vision is to eradicate maternal and infant mortality by increasing awareness and knowledge of this seemingly intractable public health crisis across the United States.
Womentum MD "transforming women's health technology" is our sister start-up corporation innovating technologically advanced products and services designed specifically for women and girls across the lifespan. Our Better Birthing Box is the first digital, mom-centered, obstetric triage kit, and dashboard designed to improve pregnancy and birth outcomes. Even at Womentum MD...women including MOMs come first!
SHERO (Shaping Healthy & Equitable Reproductive Outcomes) is a prenatal program designed in direct response to the pandemic to meet the holistic (physical, mental, spiritual, social, and economic) prenatal needs of expectant moms and their newborns. While an online social networking community is only a partial solution toward addressing pregnant women’s needs during COVID-19, SHERO is designed to engage on a more personal and local level with pregnant women throughout pregnancy, delivery of their newborn, and into the postpartum period.
The Baby Basket Brigade is our signature program created to deliver much-needed baby supplies to NICU families. Having a baby in the NICU can be scary and stressful. With your generous tax-deductible donation, we provide families with supplies like diapers, pacifiers, onesies, and their first book. Baskets are delivered to local NICUs to show moms and their families how much we care. Please join our Baby Basket Brigade and donate to help get baskets out to those in need!
For more information on how to lead a Basket Brigade delivered in your community with MOMentum Park, please reach out to our team at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Park acts as a gatekeeper for pregnant women to find timely, trusted, culturally competent, and medically accurate prenatal information and social service resources, with a marketplace, and access to services that support basic needs like housing and food assistance.
Through The Park, we connect with pregnant women on social media (Facebook & Instagram) and host interactive events, a library of recorded webinars, discussions, and professional training for the benefit of pregnant women, family members, healthcare and social service providers, and interested community members who wish to aid in the empowerment of expectant mothers toward the improvement of maternal and infant health outcomes.
MOMentum Park designs programs and services in direct response to the evolving needs, gaps, and challenges in the field of Maternal and Child Health. With this in mind, we want to capture the experiences felt by moms and families during this unfortunate pandemic. Our photo-documentary project will ask those moms who were pregnant and/or gave birth during COVID-19 to share their experiences.
It is important for us to capture the voices of moms and their support teams to hear their experiences, learn how we can better prepare for other unforeseen events, and learn how to help and support them now and into the future. If interested, we will ask volunteers to capture voice-recordings, photos, and/or videos (all of which will be collected virtually to ensure the safety of families).
We would love to capture and share your experience of being pregnant and/or giving birth during the pandemic. If you are interested please reach out to us!
