Every Mother Counts
...our collective small acts add up to make a big impact!
Exciting News to Announce!
I am thrilled and beyond excited the Stella & Dot foundation has partnered with Christy Turlington Burns and her charity, Every Mother Counts!
At our annual conference last week, Christy Turlington shared her personal story of hemorrhaging during her child birth and while she had all the doctors and tools necessary to save her and her child's life, she has learned that hundreds of thousands of women do not have access to the basic necessities to ensure a clean and healthy delivery. Leaving unthinkable numbers of babies motherless...even here in the U.S.
Through our partnership, we’ve created our chic ‘Enlighten Bracelet’ for only $39. All net proceeds will benefit all the programs Every Mother Counts supports:
1 bracelet - provides a woman transport to and from necessary health care.
5 bracelets - pays for a fetal Doppler to ensure safe pregnancy and delivery.
10 bracelets - educates a low-income woman on breastfeeding, nutrition and newborn care.
20 bracelets - buys essential medical equipment for midwifery students, pays for two prenatal visits for uninsured women, buys six birth kits for mothers-to-be.
50 bracelets - covers the necessary books, school supplies and teaching aids for midwifery students.
100 bracelets - trains a skilled birth attendant through a one-year program.
200 bracelets - buys a 'solar suitcase' that will deliver otherwise unavailable electricity for lights and equipment in rural health facilities.
Christy's passion that inspired her to start "Every Mother Counts", a non-profit organization dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother, really spoke to me as a mother! Yes…it brought me to tears, AND it fired me up and made me determined to sell 200 of our Enlighten Bracelets to partner with this mission! No wonder Christy Turlington is on TIME's 2014 list of 100 most influential people in the world! The work she is doing is amazing! We are so lucky to have access to so many great services, however there are millions who do not.
When a child is born, a mother is also born. But EVERY 2 minutes, a mother loses her life during pregnancy or childbirth. In just 2 minutes, you can help make a difference!

“Every Mother Counts is excited to partner with Stella & Dot’s mission driven community to help us achieve our goal to make pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother. We know we can't do this work alone and are always reassured that there are others who want to contribute in meaningful ways. Through this partnership, we will be able to educate many more about the global maternal healthcare challenges and also raise funds to support programs that improve access to quality maternity care that can prevent unnecessary deaths at birth." - Christy Turlington Burns, Founder Every Mother Counts
