Mothers around the world are caring for their children. Population Media Center realizes we must protect, appreciate, and care for mothers.

Every day approximately 800 women die from preventable causes related to pregnancy and childbirth. That’s one woman every two minutes, and 99 percent of these mortalities happen in developing countries. A world with healthy children requires a world with strong and healthy mothers. Population Media Center’s (PMC) dramas focus on issues like the importance of prenatal care, nutritional needs of mom and baby, and the health benefits to mothers and newborn babies when pregnancies are spaced to allow the mother’s body to recover from previous pregnancies. Maternal and child health are tightly linked and PMC knows that with education and societal and familial support mothers everywhere can better care for themselves and their families.
