SISTER TO SISTER INTERNATIONAL PROMOTES BIRTH EQUITY

Sister-to-Sister recently hosted a Town Hall titled “Birth Equity Improvement Project – Pushing the Needle Forward”.  This was sponsored in collaboration with County Legislator, Jewel Williams-Johnson at the Westchester County Center on March 19th.




During the Town Hall meeting, the objective was to receive updates from birthing hospitals in the area about their efforts to promote birth equity. The latest findings on birthing statistics from the New York State Maternal Mortality and Morbidity Review Board were also discussed. Programs and initiatives resulting from Westchester County and community partnerships were shared, and community members shared their personal experiences.


The attendees at the Town Hall included Westchester County Executive, George Latimer, Assistant County Executives, Ken Jenkins, Westchester County Legislator, Jewel Williams-Johnson, Westchester County Department of Health Executives, as well as numerous hospital birthing representatives and community partners. The participating hospitals were St. John's Riverside Hospital, Westchester Medical Center, and Phelps Hospital.


The forum was well attended and impactful. The information shared shed light on the status of maternal mortality and morbidity in Westchester County, and highlighted initiatives to improve and sustain better outcomes.
