White Ribbon Alliance and Million Mums campaign
Mumsnet is teaming up with the White Ribbon Alliance to support its Million Mums campaign
The alliance would like Mumsnetters to help them to raise awareness of the fact that every minute of every day, somewhere in the world, a woman dies due to pregnancy or birth-related complications.
This leaves 2 million children motherless every year - and 80% of these deaths would have been easily preventable with basic healthcare during pregnancy and birth.
How you can help
Million Mums wants, well, a million mums to put their names to the campaign, and to donate if possible. They need a big boost to meet their target - so please do sign up.
You can find out more about the campaign, which is led by Sarah Brown (@sarahbrown10, if you tweet), at www.millionmums.org
