How can you help women give birth safely across the globe!

$5 is all it takes to help provide one midwife with the kit she needs to perform a safe, normal delivery. 

One of us is a midwife, and both of us are mothers and thankfully are happy, healthy women.  We grew up in a family that encourages "paying it forward" in life.  We have a strong sense of commitment to helping other women in our world live healthy, successful lives.  We feel strongly that a healthy women equals a healthy mother who can give birth and raise healthy children which in turn helps to create healthy future generations in that same family.  
One way we help is by donating to the International Medical Corps.  This organization helps families all over the globe have healthy, safe pregnancies and births and connects their caregivers & midwives with the needed supplies necessary to help make a birth culminate in a positive outcome.   We hope you will read about this organization and consider giving to their donation fund.  We think it is a great way to say to the women of the world, "No matter your birthplace - YOU MATTER TOO!"

A quote from "Becoming a mom should be one of the most joyous events in a woman's life—but in many parts of the world getting pregnant is the most dangerous thing a woman can do. In fact, a woman dies from pregnancy and labor every minute—the equivalent of five jumbo jets of women dying every day. See what you can do to help end maternal mortality."

For $5, you can help provide one midwife with the kit she needs to perform a safe, normal delivery.  Every minute, a woman dies due to complications during pregnancy and childbirth. Without the proper equipment, midwives cannot adequately handle the problems that can arise during and shortly after delivery.
