Since 2013, we have partnered with Richmond Healthy Start Initiative to provide technical and social media assistance for the Big Latch On, RVA Latches On!, and RVA Breastfeeds, events that promote community support for breastfeeding.
We are currently partnering with Richmond Healthy Start, Richmond City Health District, Carolina Global Breastfeeding Institute, and The Spark Mill to produce a day-long symposium designed to train care providers in the use of a research-based prenatal breastfeeding education tool.
In spring and summer 2016 we will partner with VCU School of Nursing on a pilot research study exploring the effects of yoga on measures of health and mood in pregnant women. Also in 2016, Nurture will convene a series of Community Conversations with maternal health stakeholders to explore resources, gaps, and opportunities to improve support for pregnant and postpartum women in RVA.
