EVERY MOTHER COUNTS
Introducing our New & Fabulous Partnership
Every Mother Counts and Stella & Dot
This is what touched me the most and brought me to tears at the Stella & Dot conference I have just returned from. I am honoured to be a part of this incredible partnership and truly want to do as much as humanly possible to support Every Mother Counts!
Every 2 minutes a Mother dies during Child Birth. 98% of these deaths are preventable. Every Mother Counts and Stella & Dot are working together to ensure Mothers all over the world have access to medical care and support during pregnancy and beyond.
I was considered to be a "high risk" pregnancy for all 3 of my babes because of the diabetes factor but Connor's delivery (which to quote my delivery doctor "you are the 1% of people for whom I needed all of my training") is what really makes me want to help women around the world have access to something as small as a flashlight so they do not have to give birth in total darkness. Or, as one woman from Nigeria said...with only a 3 year old toddler to assist.
As Christy said in her keynote address "Motherhood is the biggest sisterhood we will ever be a part of". Without the blessings of being born in Canada, I and so many of the amazing women in my life could have easily become one of the sad statistics mentioned in the video. I feel so strongly that ALL women deserve better! So please help me make a difference!
How Can 1 Bracelet Make a Difference?

The bracelet is engraved on the inside with the words mother, sister, daughter in English, French and German and they would make beautiful and conscious gift-giving ideas.
