Latched Support transforms communities through babies, women, and families by providing access to vital health services, quality education, critical material assistance, and advocacy.
For 5 years Latched Support has been synonymous with uplifting mothers through educational materials to feed their babies. However, a lot has happened in 5 years. Within 2022, Latched Support has been an advocate and educational resource to 2500 families, 1500 newborns, and thousands more impacted through our Prenatal/Pregnancy Program, Parenting Education Program, and Material Assistance Program. When we started Latched Support, we began this mission because we saw the inequities within our own healthcare system. Through a terrifying pregnancy and witnessing the callous treatment of fellow pregnant women, we decided to provide prenatal and postpartum education to give women and their babies a healthy start at life. San Antonio continues to have the highest maternal and infant mortality rates in the nation. To address this, we offer Parenting Education to teach parents about crib safety, safe sleep strategies, breastfeeding guidance, car seat safety, and child maltreatment prevention.
