Classes and Support for a Healthier Pregnancy

Save My Life Classes help African-American pregnant women and babies to be healthy.  Sometimes African-American babies are born too early or too small, which increases their risk for health problems and possibly death.

Classes are held at different locations, sometimes in a group or one-to-one.  Topics include childbirth education, breastfeeding education and breastfeeding help once the baby is born.
