International Maternal Health and Rights Day has been set aside to recognize that every person has the right to receive high quality, respectful care before, during and after their pregnancies.
The White Ribbon Alliance is an international organization whose mission is to catalyze & convene advocates who campaign to uphold the right of all women to be safe & healthy before, during & after childbirth. Lamaze seeks volunteers to serve as our rep on the WRA Respectful Maternity Care Council.
If you haven’t checked out the Every Mother Counts website, you’ve GOT to get over there! This organization is geared toward raising awareness about world-wide maternal mortality, as well as supporting the achievement of the fifth Millennium Development Goal: Improve Maternal Health.
