“Zora’s Cradle is a maternity program that provides essential services to expectant mothers through a holistic approach. One of the primary objectives of the program is to address the racial disparities that persist in maternal morbidity and infant health amongst Black Women. The non-profit agency’s namesake, Zora, was born in June 2014. Zora was delivered preterm (6 months gestation) via emergency C-section due to her mother’s limited community based resources, advocacy, social supports and housing options. Zora passed away 2 days following her birth. Zora’s Cradle strives to ensure that expectant mothers of all walks of life are supported throughout their pregnancy, with each newborn being welcomed into a loving environment. This innovative program will incorporate yoga, doulas/midwives, financial empowerment, and so much more!“
