The birth of a child can be one of the most amazing experiences in a woman's life, but for too many women around the world it can also be one of the most dangerous.
In fact, 1,000 women and teenage girls will die today from preventable causes related to pregnancy and childbirth. This tragedy is preventable, but only if we ensure ALL women have access to maternal health.
Maternal health means keeping women healthy during pregnancy, childbirth and after the birth of their babies. But the skilled healthcare for moms and their newborn babies that we take for granted in Canada is often lacking in developing countries.
If we join together to support maternal health programs, we can ensure all mothers have a safe childbirth, but we need to make that support loud and clear. Stand up for mothers around the world today: add your name in support of maternal health programs that protect families and save lives!
