Tranquility With Tea
Teen pregnancy is linked to multiple disparities, including negative birth outcomes, welfare, and foster care. Investing in reproductive health education and prevention services for youth reduces teen pregnancy, promotes the development of healthy families, and strengthens the greater Spartanburg community.
Parents and caregivers are valued as their children’s primary educators. Community programs, schools, and religious institutions are important partners in addressing teen pregnancy. Providing emotional and educational support to underserved young parents throughout their pregnancies and births enables families to make well- informed, intentional choices and to lead healthy lives.
We will welcome Molly Chappell-McPhail, Executive Director of Birth Matters, who will share more about this local nonprofit seeking to reduce teen pregnancy through reproductive health education. As well as providing Doula support to vulnerable expectant mothers and their families.
