About BHB

B'more for Healthy Babies (BHB) is a Baltimore City initiative led by the Baltimore City Health Department with support from Family League of Baltimore and HealthCare Access Maryland. BHB brings together communities, organizations, and resources so that every baby might have the best start possible.  

From 2009-2017, BHB's accomplishments include:

  • 35% decrease in infant mortality
  • 64% decrease in the black-white disparity in infant mortality
  • 49% decrease in teen births
  • 75% decrease in the black-white disparity in teen births
  • 71% decrease in sleep-related infant deaths

This kind of change can only happen when people work together for a common cause. Whether a mom, family member, doctor, nurse, teacher, social worker, community leader – every baby counts on you.
