It is every mother’s hope that their pregnancy and birth goes as smoothly as possible. Many moms-to-be or new moms in the U.S. are fortunate enough to have access to the health care they need for themselves and their little one. They can feel confident that their medical care, big or small, is done in a safe, clean environment.

I have shared before how grateful I am to all of the excellent healthcare I received from my doctors during and after each of my pregnancies. I don’t know what I would have done without it. Sadly however, not everyone in the world is so lucky.

In fact, every two minutes a woman dies from preventable causes related to pregnancy and birth. That is why the Cigna Foundation has partnered with Samahope to help raise awareness and funds to improve the maternal health and safe childbirth resources provided to women around the world. And you can help, too.

Samahope enables anyone, anywhere to directly fund doctors’ life-changing medical treatments for women and children in need. The Cigna Foundation is supporting the program because of its focus on helping people overcome barriers to their health and well-being related to factors such as ethnicity, race, gender, age, geography or economics. This year’s Cigna Foundation World of Difference grant to Samahope is helping to train local nurses and fund doctors in India to provide treatment and surgery for people in need.

This year, Samahope is on a mission to protect the lives of women and children in need through their The 10,000 Lives Campaign. Their goal is to reach enough funding to provide birth kits for 5,000 moms and 5,000 babies – That means the health and safety of 10,000 lives.

Supporting the cause is simple. At Samahope, $5 helps fund a birth kit that includes the sterile tools to enable a Skilled Birth Attendant to protect a mother and child from life-threatening complications during childbirth.
