Our mission is to reduce adverse outcomes and isolation experienced by families during the prenatal, postpartum and early childhood years by increasing access to maternal health hubs which provide community support, workforce development, and advocacy for birthing and postpartum families. UBB's vision is that every person of childbearing age in the United States has access to a high-quality, culturally tailored maternal health hub.
For over 28 years, Urban Baby Beginnings has been the leading non-profit providing community support services specifically for pregnant and parenting families in Virginia. We provide an environment that respects the inherent dignity and strength of
families and celebrates their successes. We believe that through collaboration
and strong community-based support systems, that families will thrive.
In 2018 UBB joined forces to establishing a "safe spot" for families free of
judgment; creating a place where birthing people, family members, and the community
can connect and feel supported. Empowering expectant families to make healthy birth choices while addressing systemic issues that provide a barrier to individuals and communities who
deserve high quality and compassionate care reduces the risks associated with
preterm birth and adverse outcomes.
