Born as a natural progression from decades of work dedicated to addressing the too often preventable causes of death for so many moms globally—during pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum.

Supporting all expecting moms no matter where she lives

WTEP envisions a world where all expecting moms receive the vital, science-based information and the compassionate, culturally and linguistically-appropriate, and community-specific support needed to have a healthy pregnancy and a safe delivery no matter where she lives or her circumstances.

We educate and empower moms in need around the world—in an effort to ensure healthier pregnancies, safer deliveries, healthier babies, and healthier futures.

Through the Initiative we can empower, protect, sustain, guide, encourage, nourish and nurture moms globally.
