Every year, over 300,000 women die as a result of complications of pregnancy and childbirth. That’s one woman every two minutes, and almost all of these deaths can be prevented. The United States is the only industrialized nation where the maternal mortality rate is rising. Every Mother Counts is working to change this by taking an impact-focused, three-pronged approach. They raise awareness to build a community of passionate and informed allies, engage communities to take action for change and invest in people and programs working to improve access to quality, respectful, and equitable maternity care. Every Mother Counts envisions a world where all women have the opportunity to enter motherhood not only to survive but to thrive.
