Every minute, 150 babies are born.
Every minute, 1 mother dies while bringing forth life.
Ninety nine percent (99%) of the deaths of pregnant or newly delivered mothers occur in the under-developed nations, translating to the reality that only 1% of the world’s maternal deaths occur in Canada, the United States, Europe and Australia combined. 
In Africa women going into labor say “goodbye” to their family, in case they do not survive giving birth.
The disparity in care and opportunity for a safe, respectful birth is unjust.
A majority of these deaths can be prevented with simple, affordable solutions. Our mission is to help provide these solutions to women and children who so desperately need them.
