Did you know that 303,000 women die every year from complications during pregnancy and childbirth? That means over 800 women will lose their lives this Mother's Day. For each of these deaths, an average of 4 orphans are left behind. While most maternal deaths occur in the developing world, we lose 2 women everyday here in the U.S. Up to 98% of these deaths are preventable. Every Mother Counts has already impacted over half a million lives! Quotes: Every Mother Counts
Why the Orange Rose?
"The Orange Rose is a symbol of maternal health and is a powerful reminder that safer motherhood is possible. It represents a beautiful, vibrant and strong life, like that of a mother who has been supported through pregnancy and childbirth. Pass the #OrangeRose to make pregnancy and childbirth safer for every mother, everywhere." Quotes: Every Mother Counts
