I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central and Kangu. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
Every soon to be and experienced mother knows what it’s like to have the pregnancy jitters. Although it’s a glamorous thought that all pregnant women are able to have an easy birthing process and come out with a bouncing new baby, this couldn’t be further from reality. Birth is a scary, hard, excruciatingly painful process that can last for hours and sometimes days. The environment in which a mother gives birth can set the tone for the way her entire process will go not to mention help to shape the way she views the birthing process for her future pregnancies. Plus, having the proper medical care while giving birth can not only ensure a safer birth, but save lives from possible complications.
Unfortunately, not all women around the world have the ability to give birth in a safe, healthy and clean environment. Close to 300,000 women every year die from preventable causes related to pregnancy and childbirth with 99% of these deaths occurring in developing countries. Whether they live in a country where medical care isn’t up to the proper standards or they simply aren’t well off enough to afford the proper care, women through out different nations are having to cope with the thought of bringing a child into this world in a less then safe environment. Thankfully, there’s now a way for those of us who are able to access proper birthing conditions to make sure others less fortunate can as well. Meet Kangu, a non-profit organization that works through crowd-funding to help sponsor pregnant women from around the world so that they may receive pre and post natal care and give birth and in a proper and safe environment.
