Y’all know how passionate I am about the subject of Newborn Health. Ever since I lost my two day old infant Kathryn, and nearly lost her twin sister, my life has been devoted to maternal and newborn health, and supporting organizations with that mission.
This week Social Good Moms – mom bloggers who really care about Social Good and make our voices heard on those issues – is focusing on Newborn Heath.
Every year 3.3 million babies die worldwide, many of whom die from preventable causes.
Let that sink in for a moment. Preventable.
The great news: We can do something about it! We can spread the word about the Every Newborn Action Plan that has been put in place specifically to reduce newborn deaths. Additionally, as moms we can comment on the draft plan with our ideas and suggestions until February 28.
Don’t we all deserve a healthy baby?
Do you want to help? It’s easy!
Visit the Every Newborn Action Plan and comment on the draft plan.
Spread the word by sending out a couple of easy tweets this week. So easy, Social Good Moms has even written them out for us!
