343,000 women in developing nations die during childbirth every year.
This is the equivalent of 3 jumbo jets filled with women crashing every day.
And why? Because up to 90% of women in low-resource settings deliver outside of a hospital setting, and more than 30% deliver without the aid of a healthcare professional or even a midwife.
The result? Countless numbers of preventable maternal deaths due to simple complications and unsanitary conditions. And too many newborns left without a mother.
At Saving Mothers, we believe that no woman should die giving life, so we have made it our mission to eradicate preventable maternal deaths and birth-related complications. Founded and run by medical professionals, we bring field-tested, low-tech solutions to this problem. Solutions like our safe birth kits, which cost only $10, but can save lives in even the most isolated areas. We also educate birth attendants on how to ensure safe deliveries and how to deal with emergencies like post-partum hemorrhage. We also bring much needed pro bono surgical care to address birth-related complications like fistula, which left untreated, can lead to lifelong ostracism for affected women.
So please consider joining the Saving Mothers team this year!
