August 3rd is #BumpDay
Over 830 women die every day as a result of pregnancy-related causes.
One-third of all births worldwide are performed without a skilled professional.
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.
Help raise awareness about the need for maternal health care worldwide.
You can help by sharing about Bump Day on social media and post a photo of your own baby bump using #bumpday! Also, check out the website.
My heart just goes out to these women. Let's do everything we can to raise awareness for this horrifying issue. Can you think of any ways to help? I went to http://bumpday.org/ and signed up for their newsletter so I can get more information but I'd love to hear your ideas!
I have no photos of my pregnant self (but maybe someday?) so I decided to share some of the beautiful baby bumps I've had the privelege of photographing lately!
