My life changed the day I became the mother of my angel baby. In July 2020, my 16 week pregnancy ended in a late miscarriage. During my time at the hospital, I lost a lot of blood and the pain (both emotional & physical) was unbearable. I survived thanks to the amazing doctors who took care of me, the pain medication, the blood transfusions I received, and the support of my husband. Without access to this privileged healthcare system I might not be here today.I never feared for my life because I trusted my doctors and the hospital I was in. Many women are not as lucky, yet almost all maternal deaths (around 300k women a year) could be prevented by ensuring that women have access to a safe maternity care. My main goal with Art x Mom is raising awareness about the scale of this issue.
Donating is the second step, and we will do our part through art. 100% of the profits from this project will go towards Every mother counts.Every Mother Counts' mission is to make pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother, everywhere.
