Resources for Immigrants
Are you new to Philadelphia?
When we first moved to South Africa, I was 35-weeks pregnant with my second child. I learned first-hand the challenges of learning a new place, speaking a new language, and navigating a different medical system.
My passion is helping women and families connect with local resources, and to provide affordable access to birth services.
You are not alone!
