Saving Mothers is a 501c3 nonprofit dedicated to eradicating preventable maternal deaths in marginalized communities throughout the world. The Issue: More than 343,000 women die during childbirth every year. This is the equivalent of 7 jumbo jets filled with passengers crashing every day. How is this possible? Because most of the affected women do not have ccess to quality prenatal care, and/or they are unable to deliver at a qualified healthcare facility. The Result: Countless numbers of preventable maternal deaths, and too many newborns left without a mother. How do we help? (1) We develop culturally appropriate programs to encourage women to seek prenatal care throughout pregnancy and to deliver at the hospital, (2) We educate traditional birth attendants to administer proper prenatal care and to recognize complications requiring hospital referral, (3) We educate surgeons, nurses and anesthesiologists on how to deliver quality care, and (4) We encourage our fellow doctors to scrub in and join us!
