The program will review data shared in the Solano County Commission on Women and Girls (SCWG) Status Report from May, 2020. It states, “Prenatal and birth risk factors in Solano County vary by race or ethnicity, with Hispanic/Latina and African American women being the least likely to access prenatal care within the first trimester. Asian/Pacific Islander and African American children are the most likely to be born preterm and with low birth weight.”
Featured co-speaker will be Dr. Shandi J. Fuller, Solano County Deputy Health Officer, who advocates and administers equitable care so that all children and families live to their greatest potential.
Also sharing the presentation will be Davon Crawford, a certified doula, who contracts with expectant clients for services locally. Doulas are labor and delivery partners who spend time getting to know their clients’ specific needs and helping them construct their birth plans.
The pair will also address an action plan the SCWG Maternal and Child Health working group will take to improve outcomes for citizens in Solano County. Those interested in learning how they might support the SWCG action plan are especially welcome to attend. A question and answer session will follow the program.
