Every year, hundreds of thousands of women die from complications related to pregnancy or childbirth, the vast majority of them in the developing world.
Safe motherhood means ensuring that all women receive the care they need to be safe and healthy throughout pregnancy and childbirth. This, in practice, means addressing all the factors that make pregnancy unsafe.
Women and Children First, in partnership with other organisations across the world, works on a whole range of intitiatives at every level, particularly through women’s groups that empower women themselves, in order to promote Safe Motherhood.

Please help us do the same again this year by joining our Cherish Another Mother campaign.
Make a donation in the name of the mother in your life who you cherish and send her one of our Mother's Day cards to share what you've done. Read more.
