Launched by a coalition of U.S. and U.K. faith-inspired philanthropies and donors, For Mama aims to raise awareness of the high rates of maternal deaths around the world, which impact our most vulnerable women whose needs and experiences are too often overlooked.

Most of these deaths are entirely preventable with existing tools and access to consistent, quality care throughout pregnancy.

The campaign challenges all of us to think what we can — and should do — 'for mama' to ensure that life-saving interventions reach the mothers and babies who need them most.

2 Minutes

Every 2 minutes a woman dies in pregnancy or childbirth.

2x Higher

Maternal and infant mortality rates are 2x as high in Muslim-majority countries.

2/3 Deaths

Well-trained midwives could help prevent 2/3 of all maternal and newborn deaths.

40% of Deaths

More than 40% of newborn deaths could be prevented by proven interventions like skilled birth attendance.

As a mom to twins who just turned one, I've only recently begun to hear the very sweet sounds of someone calling me 'mama'. It's something I don't take for granted -- knowing that every two minutes a woman dies during pregnancy or childbirth. What gives me hope is also knowing that stat is preventable, and that a campaign like 'For Mama' is one of the first steps.
