Stop Babies Dying on Their First Day

The first day of a child's life should be a time of excitement, wonder and hope. Yet in the world's poorest countries, the first day is all too often the last.

Every year, 1 million babies die on their first day. Yet the vast majority of these deaths are completely preventable.

Whether it's complications at birth, being born prematurely or catching an infection, a fully trained and equipped midwife could save their lives.

We believe that if every baby was born with the help of a midwife more children will see their second day, weeks, years and decades.

But to make that happen we need your support.

Please pledge to help stop babies dying on their first day. Together we can make sure the first day is just the beginning.
