‘No Birth Should Be Left Up To Chance,’ Save The Children President Says

Huffington Post: No Birth Should Be Left Up to Chance
Carolyn Miles, president & CEO of Save the Children

“…As new research released [on Monday] by Save the Children reveals, 40 million women give birth without any trained help whatsoever. What’s more, two million women give birth entirely alone. … Save the Children is calling on world leaders, philanthropists and the private sector to commit to ensuring that by 2025 every birth is attended by trained and equipped health workers who can deliver essential health interventions for both the mother and the newborn. Because no birth should be left up to chance” (2/24).
