BENEFITING: Every Mother Counts
ORGANIZER: Every Mother Counts
EVENT DATE: Sep 24, 2017
Imagine you or your partner going into labor and having to walk five, ten or even twenty miles to give birth. Only to get to a clinic to find that there's no electricity or doctor. One woman every two minutes dies in childbirth, and 98% of those deaths are preventable.
EMC works to ensure mothers around the world are able to give birth safely by partnering with grassroots organizations that provide services to their local community like rides to birthing centers and midwife training programs.
Even here in the US, we suffer from one of the highest maternal mortality rates in the developed world. EMC funds programs on the ground that provide prenatal care, doula services and childbirth education to low income women.
Thank you for helping me do my part to make pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother.
