Every Mother Counts

One of the things I’ve enjoyed about making videos is learning about a lot of different issues.

This month is no different with our newest video “A World Without Moms,” which supports maternal health efforts. Through making this video, I had a chance to do research about maternal health, as well as having a frank chat with Paul Farmer about it.

My main takeaway message is that our maternal health efforts around the world are outdated and lacking. 1000 women die each day in pregnancy or childbirth, yet 8 out of 10 are preventable. It’s been shown that basic obstetrics can prevent a lot of maternal deaths. The numbers are there, but the challenge is getting people to recognize this problem and deliver the necessary care.

Check out Every Mother Counts, the organization we’re partnering with, and their PSA about the issue.

Every Mother Counts seeks to engage new audiences to better understand the challenges and the solutions while encouraging them to take action to improve the lives of girls and women worldwide. The keystone of the campaign is www.everymothercounts.org, an interactive platform providing the tools to raise awareness, education, and action.
