Disclosure: I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central and Kangu. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
Finding out you are expecting is a joyous time and to be filled with so much love. We look for the perfect doctor, perfect car seat, perfect crib. So many things going right but that’s not the case for everyone out there.
10 years ago this time I was just about 2 weeks pregnant with my first child. I was so scared. I was just 19 years old. Thankfully, I had the support of my amazing family to help me through the next few years. I had an uneventful pregnancy and delivery. My 2nd and 3rd pregnancies I was sick as a dog but both those babies were delivered happy and healthy.
Some mamas aren’t so fortunate though. Every day, 800 women die from preventable causes related to pregnancy and childbirth. Of those women, 99% of these deaths occur in developing countries. Thanks to Kangu.org pregnant moms all over the world have a chance to get the support they need!
Kangu is a non-profit organization that works by crowdfunding; basically, donors support life-saving health services for pregnant women and their babies. When anyone, anywhere, searches the Kangu site, they are shown Mamas that need their help. By donating $10 or more, you ensure that these women receive proper prenatal, birth, and postnatal care using vetted local practitioners that are proven to reduce death to Mama and baby by 80%!
