Mamas Deserve P.E.A.C.E.

Postpartum Peace of Mind is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that centers the experiences, health, education and safety of postpartum Black, Brown and Indigenous women. Research has shown that Women of Color suffer more from perinatal complications and perinatal mood/anxiety disorders than their counterparts of other races. Whether through limited of access to services, lack of social support or systemic discrimination, Women of Color are dying more and more from preventable perinatal complications. Through our Community-Focused, care model, WE are here to provide the support needed to thrive in the postpartum period to those who need it the most. 

Who We Are

Our Team

Rachel Brown, B.S.

 Rachel Brown is a trained biologist and healthcare professional with a specialty in alternative medicine and healthcare systematics. After entering the field of alternative medicine as an educator, Rachel noticed the distinct lack of diversity in the field and made the decision to address the systems that gatekeep life-saving, holistic medicine from People of Color. Currently, she is pursuing a Masters degree in Organizational Leadership and joined Postpartum Peace of Mind as the Co-Founder and Director of Client/Community Relations in April 2023. Her primary goal for this role is to expand education and access to needed care for Mamas who are in the greatest need.  

LaTasha Reece, M.S., PMH-C, CPD

LaTasha Reece is a traumatic stress researcher and postpartum doula with a background in molecular biology and physiology. After having her two daughters and experiencing racism/discrimination and a complete lack of postpartum care, LaTasha saw a need in the community and a gap in the data. With Rachel Brown, LaTasha founded Postpartum Peace of Mind Inc. to provide evidence-based, equitable, community-focused postpartum care, resources and education for Women of Color at no cost to them or their families. LaTasha's goal is to remove the barriers that are keeping Women of Color from thriving (or even surviving) their postpartum journeys.
