The Black Maternal Health Crisis
Pampers believes every parent deserves to experience the full joy of pregnancy and beyond, which is why we’re committing $250,000 over the next 12 months to help change the system issues that prevent Black moms from receiving equitable care.
For over 50 years, we’ve partnered with U.S. hospitals to provide resources to parents and the healthcare professionals who support them. By partnering with organizations who are making an impact, providing bias training, curating educational resources for both healthcare professionals and parents, Pampers is aiming to drive systemic change so that every parent can live to experience the full joy of pregnancy and beyond.
