Every mother counts is a non-profit organization dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother. We inform, engage, and mobilize new audiences to take actions and raise funds that support maternal health programs around the world. While 99% of maternal deaths occur in the developing world, we still lose approximately 2 women every day in the United States from complications due to pregnancy and childbirth. America spends more on healthcare than any other country yet when it comes to maternal health outcomes, we rank 60th in the world. Every day about two women die from preventable pregnancy and childbirth complications in the U.S. - approximately 650 women per year. And for every woman who dies, another 75 women experience a near-fatal complication – 50,000 women each year.
