Coco Life Foundation (Cocolife.black), launched in 2019, is a 501(c)(3) organization based in Philadelphia, PA. Its goal is to eliminate racial disparities in care and improve maternal health outcomes for Black mothers nationwide. Essential services include doulas, mental health counseling, paternal health, professional development, infant care, and community education. The organization accomplishes its goal through Mombassadors, an intergenerational team of community members. They help women to navigate the healthcare system and offer support to promote a healthy transition from pregnancy to postpartum. Recognizing the global magnitude of the problem, Cocolife.black launched a Global Mombassador Movement.

Our ultimate goal is to create a haven for Black moms.

The CDC and HHS speak of Cocolife.black’s exemplary performance since its founding. In addition, Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney and Governor Tom Wolf issued proclamations to recognize its work. The American Psychological Association and Cayaba Care, providers of maternity support, are among its partners. Also, the organization’s Global Mombassador Movement is attracting interest in other countries where Black maternal health and infant mortality are at risk.
