Featured Video: #WhatIsPossible for Global Maternal Health?

Today 800 women will die during childbirth from largely preventable causes. Most of those women live in low- and middle-income countries, but some mothers will also not make it through delivery right here in the United States. Most people don’t realize that the United States has the highest maternal mortality rate of any developed country in the world. Our MMR isn’t as high as many sub-Saharan countries (where maternal mortality is the highest), but we are still losing too many mothers – both here and around the world.

Every Mother Counts has put together the following film asking the question: What is Possible? We are thrilled to see our friends Midwives for Haiti and Jennie Joseph’s Commonsense Birth featured in this video. They both do so much for mothers.

Watch and share!
