Pregnant women in india are often discriminated against and routinely refused care at health facilities. with your help this year, we were able to provide $75,000 to our partner @nazdeek to provide training for activists and lawyers to document maternal health rights violations and secure legal judgments mandating better care. your gift this giving season can help ensure access to essential and respectful care for more mothers everywhere. give today at link in bio!

Skilled attendance at all births is considered to be the single most critical intervention for a safe delivery. your gift (at link in bio) can help make more safe deliveries possible. $347 can cover the monthly salary of a skilled birth attendant in haiti, a country that suffers from a critical shortage of skilled healthcare professionals. here, juslene, a @midwives4haiti (mfh) grad and post-partum nurse, checks new mamas for complications. your support allows us to invest in partners like mfh, who with your help, are now training the 9th class of skilled birth attendants.

The differences in maternal outcomes based on race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status and indigenous status are stark, and are among the most extreme in any area of health in the united states. chronic stress alone related to racism and social inequities can lead to a higher risk of pregnancy and childbirth complications. thanks to community-based organizations like commonsense childbirth, we know proven solutions can be offered to mothers and expanded into more communities. learn more by watching the full #givingbirthinamerica series today at cnn.com/mothers

With your help in 2017, we invested over $344,000 into three community-led organizations in tanzania. this happy mama and baby was cared for my one of those partners, @fameafrica , whom through your support, was able to impact over 10,000 mamas, babies, and healthcare workers. your gift this giving season can help us do so much more. just $32 can provide essential antenatal and delivery supplies to care for one woman in tanzania. give today at link in bio.

Women need consistent access to a healthcare provider throughout their lifetime for the best chances of a healthy pregnancy and safe birth. when women are unable to access affordable health insurance or a regular provider, they are more likely to enter into pregnancy with common chronic conditions - which contribute to higher risk pregnancies and births. we can ensure more women have a better chance to thrive as mothers. learn more at link in bio, or watch our film at cnn.com/mothers. #givingbirthinamerica

America’s healthcare system is the most complicated and expensive in the world – leaving millions uninsured and without the care they need. uninsured women are more likely to forego preventive care, which is critical for a healthy pregnancy and birth. learn more by watching our film at link in bio, and follow along with #givingbirthinamerica.
