Five years ago, after giving birth to my daughter, I decided to commit the rest of my life to ensuring that every woman has access to world-class maternal care.
I suffered from postpartum hemorrhage—excessive bleeding due to obstetric trauma. Postpartum hemorrhage can be a life-threatening complication and is the leading cause of maternal death globally.
In impoverished areas, the rate of maternal mortality and morbidity remains staggeringly high. The good news? Most maternal deaths are entirely preventable, as are disabling childbirth injuries like fistula.
Your action today can change lives. Read the post Harnessing the Collective Power of Mothers, published on Girls’ Globe. Then, brighten a woman’s world by making a year-end gift to Fistula Foundation, an organization that believes that no woman should suffer a life of misery and isolation simply for trying to bring a child into the world.
