- Public Hearing on Perinatal Care, Maternal Morbidity & Mortality
Photo credit: https://www.harvardpilgrim.org On November 30, 2021, the Assembly Standing Committee on Health and the Assembly Task Force on Women's issues hosted a public hearing to discuss the importance of perinatal care, maternal morbidity and mortality. The hearing called attention to both the quality and accessibility of these issues as it relates to motherhood. Throughtout the course of the hearing, quality of healthcare in relation to pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum have been shown to have great importance. The discussion brought a focus to how barriers with general understanding as well as accessibility may pose a issue amongst families. To provide more insight it's important to understand the general terminology surrounding the topic at hand. Key Terms Perinatal Care: is the care mother's recieve before and after birth relating to increasing pregnancy outcomes and decreasing maternal mortality. Maternal Morbidity: short or long term medical issues that occur due to pregnancy and/or childbirth. Maternal Mortality: is the death of a mother due to complications during pregnancy or childbirth. With an understanding of these terms, hosting public hearings such as this one call attention to complications surrounding pregnancy that is not otherwise spoken about. While sticking to talking points surrounding these issues, the hearing also examined causes and extensive consequences amongst motherhood and pregnancy. In efforts to move forward and provide solutions, its important to keep this dialogue open throughout communities. In correlation to Hope and Healing Family Center, the organization hopes to host and open further conversations centered around educating families!

- About Us | Hope and Healing Family Center. Inc. | Brooklyn | New York
ABOUT US Learn about the history and mission of Hope and Healing Family center. HISTORY Suzette Jules-Jack is the founder and CEO of Hope and Healing Family Center. In the early 1990s Mrs. Jack felt a compelling responsibility to create a non-profit organization geared towards assisting and educating underserved families. Despite this ambitious goal, Mrs. Jack wasn’t always certain about her capabilities as a leader of such an imperative organization. However, through the prayers and encouragement of family, friends, and colleagues, Mrs. Jack has been able to see HHFC plant it’s roots. When first embarking on this journey, Mrs. Jack took on great amounts of research and education which ultimately led her to obtaining both her Bachelor's and Master’s degree in Public Administration from Metropolitan College of New York. Throughout her academic journey Mrs. Jack received mentors that gave encouragement as well as guidance on how to start and run a non-profit within this sector. Once Mrs. Jack found assurance in her role within Hope and Healing Family Center, she unfortunately lost both her mother and daughters. Despite this unfortunate circumstance, Mrs. Jack continued to garner support and encouragement. This fundamentally led to the official launch of HHFC on September 14, 2014. Before Mrs. Jack’s mother passed away; she shared a book that highlighted the seven principles of leadership. These guiding principles created the foundation of Hope and Healing Family Center’s values. Seven Essential Principals of Leadership Discipline: Without this essential quality, all other gifts remain as dwarfs: they cannot grow. Vision: People of vision gauge decisions on the future; the story of the past cannot be rewritten. Wisdom: The faculty of making the use of knowledge. Decision: When all the facts are in, swift and clear decision is the mark of a true leader. Courage: Leaders require courage of the highest order. Humility: The hallmark of the spiritual leader. Integrity and Sincerity: These two qualities of leadership were part of God’s law for the Israelites (Deuteronomy 18:1). OUR PURPOSE The purpose of Hope and Healing Family Center (HHFC) Community Birthing Services Program (CBSP) is to help strengthen children and families in Brownsville, Bedford Stuyvesant, East New York and other low-income neighboring communities.
