BENEFITING: Every Mother Counts

EVENT DATE: Oct 31, 2016

Heather Collins

THE STORY:


My birthday’s coming up and I’m donating it to charity! To celebrate the fact that I've survived this long, please help girls and women, prospective and new mothers, to access and receive reproductive care, prenatal care, delivery support, and postpartum care by donating to the Every Mother Counts organization.

Over the past several years I've become more and more passionate about issues a birthing person encounters when it comes to continuous care, education, and support. I've read books and watched documentaries and discussed these topics with friends, but I wanted to do something a little more. So to start, I'm in the process of becoming a certified Birth & Postpartum Doula, and I will be volunteering at St. Luke's Hospital in the City starting this year. 

But what about the women in areas of the world who have far less? According to the Every Mother Counts organization, hundreds of thousands of girls and women around the world die every year from complications in pregnancy or childbirth, creating a rippling effect that devastates children, families, and communities. 98% of these deaths are preventable.

Every Mother Counts is a non-profit organization dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother. They inform, engage, and mobilize new audiences to take actions and raise funds that support maternal health programs around the world. 

So please help me celebrate my birthday by donating to a cause that helps make more birthdays! 

Thank you!
