Why Host A  Mom Prom?


What is a mom prom for?

Mom Prom is a fun night out with friends for a great cause! It has been a wildly successful event in the Huntsville area for the past 4 years and it has enabled their local non profit ICAN OF HUNTSVILLE to make a huge difference in their community while having a great time! We spoke with the organizers and with their approval we are bringing this year's MOM PROM to the Shoals! We are a registered MOM PROM. Visit www.momprom.org for more information on finding a mom prom near you!


A Letter from the Team

Safer Birth in Bama formed in September of 2015 in Lauderdale County with the important goals of increasing access to care, improving outcomes, and informing Alabama citizens about the issues surrounding the maternity care crisis that is currently facing our beautiful state. We are founded and established as 501(c)(3) with the IRS and all donations to our organization are considered Tax Deductible.

Alabama had the 3rd highest infant mortality rate in the nation between 2011-2013.

Alabama is a failure state for premature birth according to the March of Dimes.

Alabama has a severe access to care issue with only 28 of 67 counties currently having a hospital that offers obstetric services. And more rural facilities are closing their doors each year.

Alabama has the fewest number of physicians and midwives per capita. And has been ranked as one of the WORST states to have a baby. 

We value the lives and safety of our mothers and babies in Alabama.

Safety Starts with Education and awareness. 

Education leads to research and that in turn leads to change. You can find out more about our education and awareness campaigns and projects on our website. www.SaferBirthinBama.org

It is your sponsorship and continued support that will help to make our mission a success. Together our commitment to protecting the lives and safety of our mothers and babies that will create change for the young families that call Alabama home. We invite you to ask questions and help be part of this important change.

THANK YOU in advance for your support. 

Sincerely, 

   The Safer Birth in Bama Team
