Did you know that 1 in 5 births around the world happen without a skilled birth attendant?
Even more shocking is that over 830 women die every day as a result of pregnancy-related causes.
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.
July 25 is "Bump Day" and you can help raise awareness about maternal health needs worldwide by posting pictures of your own baby bump and sharing on your social media channels with the hashtag #BumpDay.
For every bump photo shared on July 25, $1 up to $75,000 will be donated to the What to Expect Healthy Birth Project at International Medical Corps.
