We Need Your Support More Than Ever
The number of birthing people who die giving birth in the United States has nearly doubled in the last two decades.
The United States is the only high-resourced country with a rising maternal mortality rate and is considered one of the most unsafe countries to give birth
The maternal mortality rate in the United States is nearly three times higher than that of France, the country with the next highest rate.
Black birthing people are 3x more likely to die from pregnancy-related complications than white birthing people
As we celebrate the 15th anniversary of our landmark film, The Business of Being Born, we have an urgent need to finance the preservation the original footage and to create an updated version of the movie that captures the film's immeasurable impact and the current state of crisis in maternal health in America. Your support will help make this happen.
