Every Mother Counts

March 8, 2016

Christy_TurlingtonThe film titled Every Mother Counts, was produced by executive producer and founder Christy Turlington Burns. In 2010, Turlington founded Every Mother Counts, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother. Every Mother Counts informs, engages, and mobilizes new audiences to take actions and raise funds that support maternal health programs around the world.

As we have stated in our book, childbirth in America is poorly handled, and this film highlights how bad it is. As the video on CNN says, America is about the worst place in the developed world to give birth.

We agree.  You have to prepare properly to overcome the birth machine to ensure the quality of your birth experience.  We love to see this issue coming in the limelight.

Turlington made her directorial debut on the 2010 documentary film No Woman, No Cry The 60 minute documentary profiles the status of maternal health and focuses on four cases: from Tanzania, Bangladesh, Guatemala, and the United States.The film made its world premiere at the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival in the United States, and the U.S. television broadcast premiere aired on the new Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) on May 7, 2011. The documentary earned Turlington a nomination for the Do Something With Style Award from the VH1 Do Something Awards.
