So Lucky

I empathize with this cause-20 years ago, I gave birth to our daughter overseas. Shortly after her relatively easy birth with the help of a midwife, I began to hemorrhage. The midwife quickly handed our daughter to my bewildered husband who stood at the doorway watching me nearly lose my life. I remember having my eyes locked on his until I lost consciousness. Thanks to the fact that we were in a diplomatic hospital and there was a surgeon in the house during that night, I was able to survive the problem; although I had a long recovery that included a D & C a few weeks later.

This occurred in a developed country with adequate medical support; I can't imagine the suffering of families who lose their mothers through the natural process of childbirth where there isn't sufficient support when problems arise.

I am happy to help spread the word about Every Mother Counts.
