As Black Maternal Health Week commences from April 11-17, Dr. Phindile Erika Chowa, an emergency medicine physician and founder of EMCare2U, unveils a groundbreaking initiative aimed at transforming postpartum care for mothers.

Through her extensive experience in emergency medicine and her dedication to providing holistic care through EMCare2U, Dr. Chowa has witnessed the challenges faced by mothers during the postpartum period.

Recognizing the critical need for attention to maternal health, she has developed “What to Expect Next: A Postpartum Guide to a Healthy, Happy Mom.”

In her guide, Dr. Chowa offers comprehensive support for mothers, addressing everything from health screenings for heart-related issues to connecting breastfeeding moms with lactation consultants and assessing postpartum depression.

With a focus on empowering mothers to navigate the postpartum journey confidently, the guide provides step-by-step tips, space to track symptoms, and self-care suggestions.

Reflecting on her own experiences, Dr. Chowa emphasizes the importance of prioritizing maternal health.

“Even with all of my medical experience and knowledge, there were aspects of the journey that I wasn’t prepared for,” she shares. “I can only imagine how difficult it is for a mom with no medical expertise or a good support system.”

Dr. Chowa’s initiative comes at a crucial time as statistics reveal alarming disparities in maternal health outcomes, particularly among Black women.

According to the CDC, Black women in America are three times more likely to die from pregnancy-related complications than white women.

Dr. Chowa’s guide aims to address these disparities and contribute to reducing maternal and infant mortality rates within Black communities.

“What to Expect Next” is now available on Amazon, offering mothers a valuable resource to navigate the postpartum period with confidence and care. For more information about Dr. Phindile Erika Chowa and EMCare2U, visit
