The front of the website BumpDay.org says the following statement: "A healthy mom and a healthy pregnancy can impact a child for a lifetime. But what happens when there’s no access to healthcare, what happens when nutrition isn’t made a priority? Overwhelming challenges can make pregnancy and childbirth perilous for too many moms and babies around the world."
Heidi Murkoff, the author of "What To Expect When You're Expecting" wrote a piece for The Huffington Post, explaining why she's teaming up with WhatToExpect.com, International Medical Corps, 1,000 Days, and the United Nations Foundation, so that women who are in need of pregnancy care can get the help they deserve through the right channels and promote healthy beginnings with healthy pregnancies.
