Clinical Trial Summary

This study will develop and test an intervention, called the Well-Mama intervention, which includes the use of a checklist by Community Doula Navigators to support pregnant women. Participants will be randomized to either receive standard perinatal care or standard perinatal care plus the Well-Mama intervention.


Clinical Trial Description

Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) women experience profound maternal health disparities in the US, including rising rates of maternal mortality and severe maternal morbidity. This study will develop a Well-Mama intervention for pregnant and postpartum BIPOC women, centered around Community Doula Navigators conducting in-person and telehealth check-ins on 5 priority areas (mental health, cardiovascular symptoms, safety, opioid/substance abuse, and social support), supplemented with virtual support groups and labor support. The investigators will conduct a randomized trial to test whether the Well-Mama intervention increases BIPOC women's receipt of prenatal and postpartum care. ;
