Over 830 women die every day as a result of pregnancy-related causes.
Most maternal deaths are preventable with access to prenatal care in pregnancy, skilled care during childbirth, and care and support in the weeks after childbirth.
You can help raise awareness about maternal health needs worldwide by posting and sharing on #BumpDay.
One-third of all births worldwide are performed without a skilled professional.

What to Expect, the world’s best-known and most-loved pregnancy and parenting brand is bringing together a coalition of organizations equally devoted to supporting and empowering moms and dads everywhere before, during and after pregnancy.
What to Expect
What to Expect When You’re Expecting and the companion website WhatToExpect.com make up one of the most popular pregnancy and parenting resources worldwide. The What to Expect Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping underserved families expect healthy pregnancies, safe deliveries, and healthy, happy babies.
The United Nations Foundation's Universal Access Program
Helping to secure a healthier and more successful future for women and families around the world by ensuring access to quality reproductive care and family planning resources – empowering them to plan their pregnancies at the time that’s right (and safest) for them.
International Medical Corps
Getting maternal-child care (including prenatal care and safer delivery practices) where it’s most needed, to moms-to-be in areas of the world devastated by war, natural disaster and disease. International Medical corps' training programs also bring midwives to places where pregnancy care is virtually nonexistent.
Good nutrition from a mom's pregnancy to a child's second birthday lays the foundation for lifelong health and well-being. Yet too many moms-to-be, not only in developing nations but in the US, lack the basic nutrition they need to nourish and nurture their babies so they can grow and thrive to potential. 1,000 days champions good nutrition for all moms and all babies around the world.
