The power of motherhood is universal and so are the maternal health needs.

Together we can make it a safe experience for women by creating synergies and fostering a maternal health ecosystem.

Safe Motherhood Week brings together diverse people and organisations from all backgrounds and sectors around a shared goal – making motherhood a safe and positive experience.

Our approach to develop a systematic thinking on maternal healthcare is based on the matrix for maternal health assessment and its 5 dimensions which were firmly endorsed by Vytenis Andriukaitis, EU Commissioner for Health and Food Safety, and also the President of Malta H.E. Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca at the Women in Parliaments Global Forum (WIP) Meeting in Malta.

This year we are aiming to highlight the shared experience of motherhood at global level. Issues pertaining to accessibility, vulnerability and inequality are global, and transcend cultural and geographical barriers. Whether you are the mother, the father, the doctor or the midwife, we want to see how you capture the power of motherhood.

Share your motherhood experience with us.
