Celebrating WTEP’s 8th annual #BumpDay – 20 July

This month, I am happy to spotlight the What to Expect Project (WTEP), a PMNCH member of the NGO constituency that is holding its 8th annual #BumpDay initiative on 20 July. Every day, more than 800 women die from preventable causes related to pregnancy or childbirth worldwide, and there are currently vast disparities in care based on where a mom lives, her ability to pay and the color of their skin. Founded by Heidi Murkoff, author of What to Expect When You’re Expecting, WTEP is dedicated to informing, supporting, and empowering moms in need around the world, so they can expect healthier pregnancies, safer deliveries, healthier babies, and healthier futures. The organization harnesses the power and global reach of the What to Expect brand and mobilizes its community of more than 20 million moms to help bring about positive change, particularly on issues that impact moms and families most.
