Made a Mother’s Day breakfast for my wife. The kids made cards. We’ll be doing “whatever Mom asks” all day.
“7 million women are injured and 350,000 women die from complications due to childbirth, but it’s shown in studies that these deaths are preventable by providing basic maternal health care.”
In the developed world, we often take child birth for granted. We take for granted that we’ll have access to proper prenatal, natal, and postnatal medical care.
As I thank my mom and my wife today, I’m going to try to remember that there are children in the world who don’t have a mom because their mothers did not have access to the healthcare that could have saved them.
Happy Mother’s Day.
Thanks to the mother of my kids.
Thanks Mom. And thanks to the doctors and nurses that helped her push a skinny little red head into the world 40+ years ago.
