Empowering Women to Prioritize Herself

Designed for a woman to be an active member of her health care team, Healthy Women Houston works individually with each pregnant woman to ensure her medical, emotional and social needs are being met.

The Healthy Woman Houston Community Care Coordinator (C3) is a community-based peer that is an advocate for a woman's care. The Healthy Women Houston medical team – consisting of physicians and nurses in community clinics and hospitals – knows each woman, instilling a culture of respect that puts a woman first in her care, building trust and supporting women in their own communities.

Healthy Women Houston and our collaborative partners have come together to mend the fractured approach to women’s health, getting women into care sooner, leading with a culture of respect, and improving the quality of care.

Community Care Coordinator Spotlight: Tianca

Tianca is a Community Care Coordinator from The Council on Recovery and serves pregnant and postpartum women in the Third Ward and Sunnyside communities. She is a chef, mom, birth doula, and a birth activist. She received her doula certification from the International Doula Institute in 2019. Her inspiration to enter into the world of birth work, maternal health, and advocacy came from her own struggles with navigating the complexities that exist in the system, while pregnant with her son. Being a lifelong resident of South Park, her dream is to one day create her own birthing center within the community she calls home.
