Courtney Hall, a graduate of North Carolina A&T University, is making history by opening Bump Baby Bliss, the first Black-owned ultrasound studio in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Hall, driven by her passion for supporting families, aims to prioritize the health and well-being of Black women and mothers in her community.

With a background in mental health and clinical social work, Hall is not only a wife and mother of three boys but also a therapist and doula. Drawing from her experiences, she saw a need for a holistic approach to prenatal care and decided to fill that gap with Bump Baby Bliss.

The studio offers a range of services tailored to expectant mothers, including 2D, 3D, and 4D ultrasounds, early DNA gender testing, birth doula support, perinatal therapy, childbirth classes, breastfeeding assistance, and more.

Hall’s goal is to create a nurturing and supportive environment where mothers-to-be feel empowered to advocate for their bodies and their needs.

Recognizing the disparities in maternal health care, especially for Black women, Hall aims to address these issues by providing education, support, and resources through her studio.

According to the Center for Disease Control, Black mothers are three times more likely to die from pregnancy and childbirth-related complications than white mothers, highlighting the urgent need for accessible and culturally competent care.

By opening Bump Baby Bliss, Hall hopes to provide essential services and inspire and educate new doulas, encouraging them to support families through their childbirth journey. She emphasizes that services like birth doula support and mental health counseling should be considered necessities rather than luxuries for expectant families.

For Hall, Bump Baby Bliss is more than just a business—it’s a mission to make a positive impact on her community, following in the footsteps of the historic legacy of Greensboro.

As the city where the first major sit-in against segregation took place in 1960, Greensboro has a rich history of activism and social change. Hall sees her studio as another milestone in this legacy, aiming to uplift and empower families for generations to come.

Bump Baby Bliss officially opened its doors on February 1, 2024, marking a significant moment in Greensboro’s history and the ongoing fight for equitable and inclusive maternal healthcare.
