We are looking for a press release as we launch our Childbirth Education Curriculum. We are focused on educating refugees and immigrants and would like to reach other organizations, non-profits, educators, medical providers and universities to tell them about our curriculum.
We are getting ready to launch our childbirth education curriculum state and nationwide and would like to share how beneficial and effective it is to have a curriculum that meets the specific needs of refugees and immigrants. Unlike traditional western childbirth education materials our curriculum reflects the community it serves to educate.
