About Us

We believe in a world where mothers and their children receive the best care and support possible by default. And that is our goal.

By giving a voice to mothers and parents to share their experiences, and by providing a platform for specialists in maternal care to come together, Safe Motherhood Week tells it as it is.

Working together, we are creating a momentum for maternal rights to be recognized and embraced.


We want to spread the word about maternal rights. Share your #maternalrights stories during #SafeMotherhoodWeek.
