Pregnancy and childbirth are important physical, emotional, and spiritual life experiences with the potential to be empowering and life-transforming. Mama Sana will provide low-income women of color support for healthy pregnancies, births and the early parenting phase. Mama Sana is bringing together a collaboration of resources to foster empowered health and wellness for all of Austin’s mothers.
Mama Sana provides free group prenatal care appointments with individual physical exams by midwives, as well as culturally competent emotional group support. A woman at Mama Sana can also choose to have a free birth companion (doula) and regular prenatal exercise classes. Women have access to all of these services in a coordinated and timely session.
