In Australia, the mortality rate for mothers and babies is very low.
However more than 380,000, that’s more than 800 women a day in developing countries, die each year during childbirth from preventable disease while giving birth.
Belly Bands are proud sponsors of the Birthing Kit Foundation, dedicated to providing a clean, safe birthing environment for women to reduce the incidence of infant and maternal morbidity and mortality.
It’s such a tiny kit consisting of a metre square piece of black plastic for the woman to lie on, a scalpel, rubber gloves, cotton buds, string to tie the umbilical cord and a small piece of soap.
For every 3-in-1 Deluxe pack sold on our online store, Belly Bands donates a birthing kit valued at $3. And every few months we gather staff, family and friends to assemble the packs to send to women in need.
It’s such a simple thing, so basic, but it saves lives and we believe every woman deserves the right to a clean and safe childbirth regardless of her circumstances. - Carol Brunswick
