Our Journ3i is a perinatal community-based wellness organization primarily focused on eliminating disparities of health and identifying social health determinants within infant and maternal health by providing empowering education and services. We seek to provide maternal health equity among communities of color, especially Black/African American families in Rhode Island.

RIght from the Start Campaign 2021
 

RIght from the Start is a legislative and budget campaign to advance state policies for young children and their families in Rhode Island. During the COVID-19 crisis, it has become even more clear that policies and programs that help families with young children are essential for a strong economy and public health. Investments now will help our state and Rhode Island’s young children and families weather this crisis and emerge stronger on the other side.

Cover community-based doula services through Medicaid and private health insurance. Invest in building, supporting, and sustaining the doula workforce and infrastructure in the state as a strategy to reduce racial and economic disparities in maternal and child health outcomes.

Scholarship Doula Services Fund
 

The pandemic continues to manifest a lot of anxiety and uncertainty for birthing families at this time. We would appreciate the community's continued support for our doula services scholarship fund. We have provided several scholarships services and products to families since 2020. We appreciate the mutual aid relief you are providing for families to receive perinatal care services, such as lactation, doula and childbirth education.

Urban Perinatal Education Center Fundraiser
 

We are moving forward with the nonprofit, Urban Perinatal Education Center. After completing the SEG 2020 Accelerator program to create a physical safe space for those in the perinatal life course. Please support and share our fundraiser. A landing page will open soon, more details to come.
