The Jennifer Bush-Lawson Foundation asks those who can to bend, so mothers and babies in need don’t break.
High-quality maternal and infant care should be accessible to all women and babies, as should a support system allowing them to thrive.
In honor of Jennifer Lawson, a loving mother of three, who tragically lost her life in 2014, the Jennifer Bush-Lawson Foundation serves economically vulnerable mothers and infants by working to increase access to maternal and pediatric health care and support.
Thank so the support of individuals, corporations, and community underwriters like you, JBLF has:
- Provided almost $250,000 in contributions and grants, including:
- Funding all costs for 1 year of appointments for 240 infants.
- Piloting a tele-medicine program that achieved a 65% decline in ER/Hospital admissions, 61% reduction in NICU admissions and 25% reduction in primary c-section rates.
