ACTT Workshops

Developed by the Black Coalition for Safe Motherhood, ACTT Workshops are designed to help maternity care consumers learn more about their rights and practice self-advocacy skills so they are active participants in their care.

BirthWell Partners will be hosting workshops locally in Birmingham in the near future, but in the meantime, we encourage you to visit the BCFSM website and register for an online workshop.
