Our Solution

Students for Healthy Moms and Babies Foundation will help save the lives of moms and babies by engaging a force of students to drive our philanthropic cause.

We are a philanthropic organization dedicated to reducing infant and maternal mortality in the United States. We fund innovative solutions that deliver access to quality healthcare for women, expectant mothers and their children, along with comprehensive initiatives to effectively reduce infant and maternal mortality in communities.

Our mission in-action encourages and funds the delivery of innovative solutions, including telemedicine and transportation options that overcome geographic barriers that prevent women and their infants from receiving quality medical care.

Telemedicine and in-home monitoring are among the answers that provde effective alternatives to face-to-face medical visits that are often difficult to keep for women living in certain urban and rural areas. Telemedicine improves access to medical professionals, encourages follow-up visits by patients, promotes education via video chats, increases patient compliance and advances preventive care.
