African-American babies in Ohio are dying at nearly 3x the rate of other babies. Why Black Babies has been created to help raise awareness and provide solutions to save our babies. We need your support to make it happen! More

Who We Are Why Black Babies

The statistics are alarming, and the rate of change in the statistics is even more so. But we are not here to share just statistics and sad outcomes. We are here to help affect change--to provide the support that will lead to this change and focus on positive impact toward the future.

WhyBlackBabies.com was created to bring the resources, information and support directly to those who need it. The assistance has been developed and is available, but it is of no service to the issue if the individuals and families in need don't know where to find it.

WhyBlackBabies.com is that place to go.

Black Babies are Dying...WHY?

Black babies are dying at nearly 3 times the rate of other babies in Ohio. The infant mortality rate (the death of a baby before his/her first birthday) for African-Americans in Ohio was 14.3 compared to 5.3 and 6.2 in the White and Hispanic populations respectively. The African-American population is the only category in which the rate of death has recently increased. WHY?

The First Step is Awareness...

With the funding raised for Why Black Babies, we will be able to continue our reach throughout the entire state of Ohio, raising awareness of the issue. There are many people who are not even aware that this is a problem, and/or do not know what should be done to help this problem. Our website, www.whyblackbabies.com, and our social media outreach is a start, but we need funding to continue these efforts in conjunction with other outreach into our communities. In creating the awareness, we can get to the next step of affecting change in the resources available to moms and moms-to-be and the education necessary to assist them in having healthy pregnancies and babies.
