Help Moms and Newborns Live!


Maternal mortality is nothing short of a worldwide epidemic. Nearly every minute of every day, a woman dies from pregnancy-related causes.

Please ask your elected officials to support critical investments in foreign aid, which provide lifesaving interventions that reduce mortality and improve the health of mothers and their newborns around the world.

Hundreds of thousands of women die each year from preventable complications related to childbirth and millions more are left with life-altering disabilities. In fact, nine out of 10 women in sub-Saharan Africa will lose a child during their lifetime. There, a woman's lifetime risk of maternal death is a staggering one in 22, compared with one in 4,800 in the United States.

In order to stop this catastrophe, we need the political will and adequate resources to ensure lifesaving care is delivered. Take action now!
