About The Owner
As a young woman looking forward to having children someday, I was surprised to learn about all of the complications that women can experience during pregnancy, at birth and postpartum.
I was astonished to learn that it is still possible for a woman to lose her life having a child.
But what I found most troubling was that maternal health was not receiving the attention and research funding it deserves.
For a few years now I have competed in the Miss America Program in the State of Maryland.
The most important part of being a titleholder is dedicating a year of service to an important public concern.
The issue of maternal health and an organization that celebrates women is a perfect match for raising awareness and effecting change for all women and their families.
For these reasons I am dedicating my time to this cause and committing myself to the goal of safer maternity for all women.
I hope that SaferMaternity.org gives you a place to find answers and comfort.
Whether you are a woman who is currently experiencing a pregnancy or birth complication, a man whose partner is struggling with a maternal complication, or a friend who just wants to help — I hope we can help you by providing support and resources.
