Our Story

Welcome to Palmetto Perinatal Services, a non-profit organization committed to enhancing maternal and infant health outcomes across South Carolina. Our mission is rooted in promoting breastfeeding initiation and duration rates while reducing the incidence of premature births, low birth weight, and other risk factors associated with infant mortality. With a specific focus on Black American infants, who face a higher likelihood of mortality before their first birthday compared to white infants, we strive to address these disparities head-on.


At Palmetto Perinatal Services, we believe in the power of accessible and culturally sensitive perinatal education and support services. Through these initiatives, we empower expecting parents and families with the knowledge and resources essential for providing their babies with the best possible start in life. Our collaborative efforts extend to healthcare providers, community organizations, and various stakeholders, creating a comprehensive network of support for families in need.


Recognizing the urgent need to bridge the gaps in infant mortality rates in South Carolina, our mission is clear: to reduce these rates through effective perinatal education and support services, particularly for Black American families. By focusing on improving maternal and infant health outcomes, we aim to pave the way for a brighter future for all families in the state. At PPS Non-Profit, we are dedicated to creating a healthier and more equitable society for everyone. Join us in this vital mission to make a lasting impact on the well-being of mothers and infants in our community.
