Join our network of individuals who want to make a change
On April 9th, 2011, the Healthy Mothers Healthy Birth Summit brought together physicians, researchers, midwives,
childbirth professionals, and advocacy groups to examine the rising maternal mortality rate in the US. This productive
gathering brought to light the need for a multi-disciplinary coalition, collaborating together to effectively make a
difference. As a result of the Summit, we have changed our name to the Healthy Mothers Healthy Birth Initiative to
help us best fulfill our new-found purpose. HMHB Initiative is committed to working with our partners in finding ways
to pursue practical steps to decrease the US maternal mortality rate. Stay tuned in for a website face-lift and for
more information on how to address this almost silent epidemic! We need your help to achieve our goals and we hope
you feel that the time for action is NOW!
