The reason that so many babies are dying in Hamilton County is complex, but something that is at the root of the problem is that many women in our community feel alone and frightened during pregnancy.

Women in our most vulnerable neighborhoods tell us that pregnancy too often feels like a time of constant judgment. Imagine instead, if it felt like a time of unconditional support from their entire city. That’s why we asked Cincinnatians to write letters of encouragement to pregnant mothers as part of our Letters of Love campaign.

We encourage you to share this video with your colleagues, families, friends, and social networks. Let’s ensure all pregnant women in Hamilton County feel supported by their community.
