BENEFITING: Every Mother Counts
EVENT DATE: Nov 09, 2014
1 Woman dies every 2 minutes from complications during pregnancy and childbirth.
Personally, my delivery of Vince, was complicated due to toxemia, and the hospital staff I was rushed to, saved my life, and my sons life. I hate to imagine, if I didn't have access to a hospital, what could have happened. Even under their care, my blood pressure went to 220/160. Scary.
EMC is a non-profit for making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother. To inform, engage, and mobilize actions and raise funds to support maternal health programs, right here in the U.S., along with 7 other countries, to date.
Even a $5.00 donation may get a woman a ride to a clinic, and not have to walk many miles to get care.
