We are Saving Mothers because no woman should die giving life. Saving Mothers is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to eradicating preventable maternal deaths and birth-related complications in low-resource settings.
Each year, more than 300,000 women and girls die from complications of pregnancy and childbirth. That’s one mother dying every two minutes. The vast majority of these deaths are due to lack of access to basic sexual and reproductive health care and 75% of these deaths could be prevented with low-cost interventions. We are an organization of doctors and allied professionals that works with country governments and local organizations to improve maternal health care in resource-limited settings. We design innovative, evidence-based programming that we customize to the specific needs of communities and bring biomedical technologies where they are most needed.
