Introducing myself and my journal: Getting vital health information directly into the hands of moms who need it the most

About Me:
I'm first and foremost a mom. A mom who cares about the world and cares about other moms living in poverty whose deaths related to pregnancy and childbirth can be prevented. My own children have been faced with losing their mother and I know the devastation my extended illness had on my family. The effect of a mother dying in child birth is exponential and affects her family, her community, her country and OUR world.

My Passions:
my kids, my work, yoga, swimming and travel

My Challenges:
Doing too much and wearing out

My Vision for the Future:
A world where we all realize that at the end of the day, we all want the same thing: health and hapiness and the only way to get there is through love.

My Areas of Expertise:
strategy, social innovation, social enterprise, sitting in huts talking to women all over the world, public speaking

Dear Kgagnaire,

Welcome to World Pulse! I am so glad you have found us and have added your voice to this growing community of women from more than 190 countries around the world. This is an incredible platform to share your story, offer solutions, collaborate, be inspired, inspire others, and network with others who share your passions and goals.

I was moved by your telling of your extended illness and the painful effect this had on your children. I have two young sons (ages six and nine) who are the center of my universe, and would be heart-broken for them to have to endure such an ordeal. It sounds as though you're "out of the woods?" I hope that the illness is behind you...

I wanted to let you know that there has been a World Pulse campaign this Spring regarding the issue of Maternal Health which you may wish to read about. You can click here to read many of the pieces that were submitted around this topic: http://worldpulse.com/taxonomy/term/660
And the Call for Submissions page is here: http://worldpulse.com/about/blog/call-for-submissions-maternal-health

I encourage you to reach out to others who share your passions, goals, interests and vision for the future. To learn more about networking with others and how to navigate the World Pulse website, please refer to the Getting Started Guide: http://worldpulse.com/pulsewire/about/guide

I thank you again for joining World Pulse and hope to hear more from you in the days to come.

Warmly,

Susan
