Because no woman should die giving life


As the COVID-19 pandemic heightened in March, Saving Mothers began mobilizing to support underserved women in NYC through our mPOWHER program, in partnership with Northern Manhattan Perinatal Partnership. Thanks to your donations, we were able to deliver formula, baby wipes, diapers, and groceries to mothers in need. 

We have now shifted our focus to our global sites in Guatemala and Kenya. In addition to providing community members and health care providers with PPE and other essential items, our team has been working on developing COVID safety protocols for hospitals and birth attendants. 


Women in developing nations are 43 times more likely to die during childbirth.

The Result

Countless numbers of preventable maternal deaths due to simple complications or unsanitary conditions. And too many newborns left without a mother.

No Access to Hospital

Up to 90% of women in low-resource settings still deliver outside of a hospital setting.

The Problem

On average, one woman or girl dies due to complications from childbirth every two minutes. 75% of these deaths could be prevented with access to low-cost basic sexual and reproductive healthcare.
