Call for Submissions: Maternal Health

Every year, approximately 287,000 girls and women die from pregnancy-related causes. Are you a health worker on the front lines working to prevent these deaths? Are you a citizen journalist uncovering inequalities in maternal care? Are you an activist fighting abortion policies that endanger women's lives? Are you a concerned citizen who has witnessed tragedy and is compelled to speak out? Are you aware of innovative solutions to maternal mortality you want to see shared and replicated?

If you have a perspective on maternal health issues in your community, we want to hear from you!

We are partnering with Women Deliver to raise the volume on voices speaking out for maternal health. World Pulse community members from across the globe have gotten this initiative off to a great start with powerful solutions:

  • Adepeju in Nigeria seeks increased regulation and training for traditional birth attendants to prevent tragedy.
  • Upasana in India laments the deadly delays confronting women with delivery complications. She envisions emergency obstetric care services within the reach of all pregnant women.
  • Precious in Cameroon calls for awareness to prevent women from being coerced into unnecessary caesarean sections.
Add your voice! What maternal health challenges and solutions do you see in YOUR community?

CHINYERE MMA OKOH's picture

her consolation

She is humble but blessed

Calm and reserved
For she knows her worth
It springs forth even when she's not acknowledged
She sacrifices all, gives all, bears all and even endures all
As she awaits the prize of her pain
For it's is what she lives for and draws joy
Even when tomorrow seem blank
The past pain is forgotten
But replaced by wonder
As she holds her child
For what seems like months of pain came with a life time of joy

This is her consolation
