Palmetto Perinatal Services
Welcome to Palmetto Perinatal Services, where we're dedicated to making a real impact in the heart of Columbia, SC. Our mission revolves around perinatal equity, with the Perinatal Equity Fund at the core, driving positive change in Black infant and maternal health outcomes. We're actively providing scholarships for midwifery care, empowering individuals with the knowledge and resources for optimal perinatal experiences.
Join us on this journey to build a community where every family, irrespective of background, can access the care they rightly deserve. Together, we're crafting a healthier, more equitable future for mothers and infants in Columbia.
Our Palmetto Perinatal Mission is deeply rooted in South Carolina, aiming to enhance maternal and infant health outcomes by boosting breastfeeding rates, reducing premature births, and addressing other risk factors. Our primary focus is on Black American infants, striving to provide every chance for them to thrive.
We're not just here to talk; we're here to support, educate, and empower expecting parents and families. Collaborating with healthcare providers, community organizations, and stakeholders, we're building a comprehensive network of support for families in need.
At PPS Non-Profit, we recognize the critical need to address disparities in infant mortality rates in South Carolina. Our mission is to reduce these rates by providing effective perinatal education and support services to Black American families, ultimately contributing to a brighter future for all families in the state. We believe that by focusing on improving maternal and infant health outcomes, we can help create a healthier and more equitable society for all.
