The U.S. maternal mortality rate is one of the highest of all developed nations. Worse than that, 80% of all pregnancy-related deaths are preventable according to the CDC.
Every maternal death is a space where grief stands in the place that joy should be.
Qiyamah Birth & Wellness Center is working to turn this crisis around. We produce and print, low-literacy educational materials for moms and families on how to survive pregnancy and childbirth. Most importantly, our materials teach moms the urgent maternal warning signs and symptoms so they know when to get emergency care before it's too late.
Your donation helps us to produce and print more materials to give out to community centers, churches, expecting moms and their families.
We humbly ask for your help so we can increase our efforts.
"For the hurt of the daughter of my people am I hurt; I am black; astonishment hath taken hold on me. Is there no balm in Gilead; is there no physician there? why then is not the health of the daughter of my people recovered?" Jeremiah 8:21-22
