MOMS Orange County’s advocacy work stems from its vision for healthy babies, empowered mothers, and strong families throughout Orange County. We believe that our advocacy activities are an important part of fulfilling this vision.

Therefore, we seek to continue to promote the healthy growth and development of babies, provide access to quality care for mothers and babies, and ensure that vulnerable women in Orange County have the care and support they need to have a healthy family. Based on these beliefs, our current four advocacy objectives are:

  • Protecting and improving access to maternal-child healthcare and support services.
  • Expanding access to maternal mental health screening, treatment, and support services.
  • Expanding access to gestational diabetes screening, prevention education, treatment, and support services.
  • Promoting breastfeeding education and support services.
