Kathryn Hall-Trujillo | Founder Birthing Project USA | Coffee Party Feminists | Scoop.it

Kathryn Hall-Trujillo worked for the state of California from 1976 to 1991 as a public health administrator, and during that time, noticed that families often struggled to pay for the care of infants born with serious health problems. When she realized that pregnancy care for expectant mothers would cost less than 0.01 percent of the funds used to stabilize a sick infant, she created Birthing Project USA -- a nonprofit organization that improves birth outcomes by recruiting and training community volunteers to provide guidance, education and social support to pregnant and parenting teens and women.
