Pregnancy should be a joyous experience, but this is a false reality for many women around the world, including the United States. Far too many new and expectant mothers die in the U.S. each year from pregnancy-related complications while an additional 60,000 women experience life-threatening postpartum complications. Women of color are at increased risk of adverse outcomes during and after pregnancy, despite socioeconomic status. Pregnancy-related deaths can occur during pregnancy, at delivery, or up to a year after pregnancy (postpartum phase). Studies within the past two years reveal that over 80% of these deaths are preventable. The preventable rate rises to 90% for families in states like Texas. Additional challenges often arise for women and families living with certain conditions.
YOUR SUPPORT MATTERS
The work we do and the support we render as community health workers (CHW), public health professionals, perinatal care providers, advocates, and community partners, would not be possible without the generous support from individuals, organizations, and community leaders. The maternal health crisis has been a growing concern for decades. The short- and long-term implications of the COVID-19 pandemic exacerbated this issue. Now more than ever, women and birthing families need quality care and a trusted support system.
We are grateful for your support of PUSH and the women, families, and communities that, through a partnership with PUSH, have a better chance of improved health outcomes for both moms and babies, successful delivery, and postpartum recovery. By creating a supportive environment for women and families, we can help change outcomes for future generations. Your support is greatly appreciated.
The Maternal Mortality and Morbidity Review Committee's #1 recommendation: "Increase access to comprehensive health services during pregnancy, the year after pregnancy, and throughout the preconception and interpregnancy periods to facilitate continuity of care, implement effective care transitions, promote safe birth spacing, and improve lifelong health of women."
This is why we PUSH!
