For my Bat Mitzvah, I have decided to support Every Mother Counts, an organization that works hard to make childbirth safe for every woman no matter where she lives. We are really lucky living in New York City because we are close to some of the best doctors in the world, but in so many other places pregnant women are completely cut off from medical care. Every year, almost 300,000 women die during pregnancy and childbirth, and most of these deaths are preventable with the right care. My target is to raise $6,250 so that Every Mother Counts can provide safe birth kits to 2,000 women. Thank you for helping more mothers get the special care that they need during pregnancy and childbirth!
