When we came across Every Mother Counts, a non-profit organization who are dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother. We knew we wanted to support them and help in anyway we could! The mission of Every Mother Counts is to, "inform, engage, and mobilize new audiences to take actions and raise funds that support maternal health programs around the world." It is estimated that 303,000 women die every year from birth complications during pregnancy and childbirth.
The Global Problem
Every Mother Counts is, "addressing the barriers to maternal health around the world and at home." The barriers include transportation, education and lack of supplies! And with our donation this month, we hope to both alleviate their needs but also educate and spread awareness!
Maternal Health in the U.S.
2 Women die everyday in the U.S. from complications related to pregnancy and childbirth. Why? A chronic illness, lack of insurance, over medicalicaiton and ethnicity are just a few factors.
We are excited to announce that with your order of a moses basket today and each day we are donating one dollar to Every Mother Counts so that our mama village can help other mothers both here and abroad!
If you have a moment we highly encourage you to read their stories of hope and bravery!!
