Every Mother Counts

Maternal Health For Women Worldwide

Our New stella&dot Foundation Partnership

I am thrilled to announce some exciting news for the Stella & Dot Foundation, our new partnership with Christy Turlington Burns and her charity, Every Mother Counts! Every Mother Counts is a non-profit organization dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother.

As Jessica Herrin, our CEO and Founder so eloquently put it “As a community, Stella & Dot is about making a difference in women’s lives. It’s important for us to extend that mission to women and children, at home and around the world through the Stella & Dot Foundation”.

Through our partnership, we’ve created our chic ‘Enlighten Bracelet’ for $39US . All net proceeds will benefit programs Every Mother Counts supports. A Leather band in the foundations signature poppy color. The Leather band is embossed on the inside with the words Mother Sister Daughter in English French and German. The Enlighten bracelet has a buckle closer and will fit wrists small through large. It is adorned with a Gold plated bar to add a chic touch of shine.


This bracelet makes a beautiful gift for any occasion packed with a lot of meaning. Mothers Sisters, Daughters, Grandmothers, Aunts, Cousins and Best Friends. Every women united by the gift only women posses.

What can 20 Enlighten bracelets help fund?
Essential medical equipment for midwifery students
Pays for two prenatal visits for uninsured women
Buys six safe birth kits for mothers-to-be

As a mother who had complications during the delivery of my second son, I couldn't imagine going through any of it without my midwife and my monthly exams. Caleb was breech. I had the option and ability to have him flipped to give us a chance at a natural birth. unfortunately Caleb came down face presentation as opposed to crown. I knew something was wrong the very second I pushed. Caleb ended up being delivered via c section. Had I not had an educated midwife and been blessed with my Doula, Doris Ann I could have killed Caleb by vaginal birth.

Women around our world go through so many preventable complications that cause 1 death every 2 minutes. 98% of them preventable with proper prenatal and medical care.

Without modern day medicine I would have never known that Caleb was breech. In some countries a mother will not only die with her breech new born, she will also only have her children trying to help deliver that baby in which they will then watch their mother die along with their sibling. Some of these children who become orphans are just toddlers.

My goal is for every Mother Sister Daughter that I know to participate in this amazing cause, simply because we have all been blessed with educated medical health practitioners and have survived pregnancy and child birth (with or without complications). We are all alive because we have educated medical providers and I guarantee I am not the only women you know that has had complications during pregnancy and childbirth.


Together we can make it possible for a midwife to be trained and certified, 500 bracelets. We can provide things we take for granted like safe transportation to have check ups or deliver our babies, 1 bracelet. Equipment like fetal dopplers, 5 bracelets and electricity, 200 bracelets. United we can make a huge difference!
