Supporting Families Through Birth and Beyond

Join me in giving to Nurture


$0 towards $500

I'm honored to be a board member at Nurture, and I hope you'll join me in making a donation this giving season.

Nurture has been making Richmond a more family-friendly city for nearly 10 years. Your gift will help to support:

Birth & Early Parenting Resource Directory
Nurture is creating an online repository of verified pregnancy and early parenting resources that will reduce organizational siloing, create a better networked maternal/infant health ecosystem, be a platform to reach the community, and help identify gaps in service.

Ecosystem Cultivation
Nurture hosts a combination of professional education seminars, meetings, and community events where Perinatal Health and Early Childhood Stakeholders gather for peer learning and cross-sector relationship building.

Since 2013, this collaborative effort has engaged multiple stakeholders to reduce childhood obesity through policy, infrastructure, and environmental changes that promote a breastfeeding-friendly community in Richmond.

Breastfeeding Real Talk
Culturally appropriate infant feeding support led by lactation support providers trained in Lactation from the Black perspective (The B.L.A.C.K. Course) and Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders.
