I want to live in a world-
where every pregnant woman has access to prenatal care. Basics such as nutrition counseling, providing vitamins and healthy food, checking for diabetes and pre-eclampsia, and monitoring the fetal heart rate should be available worldwide. No mother should die and every child should be given a healthy start in life.
It is heartbreaking to see babies born with preventable defects and diseases. As a pediatric nurse I was able to work my shifts and go home. But, having a son, whose birth mother did not see a doctor until giving birth in a parking lot, our family struggles with his physical and developmental issues. Lifelong issues that were most likely preventable with regular doctor visits.
Moms can change the world, one baby at a time....
