Every Mother Counts is an organization founded by Christy Turlington Burns to address the barriers to maternal health around the world and at home. Every year 303,000 women die every year as a result of complications during pregnancy and childbirth: that’s one woman every two minutes. And 98% of those deaths are preventable.
By providing transportation to healthcare providers, education, and providing health supplies to health centers and caregivers, Every Mother Counts strives to greatly reduce the number of deaths related to childbirth.
“Each preventable death is one death too many” – Christy Turlington Burns
