San Francisco Black Infant Health (BIH) Program

About SF Black Infant Health Program


The San Francisco Black Infant Health Program honors the unique needs, history, and traditions of women of African descent. The values and priorities of Black women are at the core of every interaction. Participants build on their strengths to cope with life's challenges and enrich themselves, their families, and their communities.

The activities in the SFBIH program help a woman bolster her confidence and strengthen her resilience. We help her incorporate the tools of mindfulness, gratitude practice, and good nutrition in her everyday life to increase her protective factors so that she and her baby can thrive.
