Every mother should have the opportunity to bring her child into this world safely.
At Della. B, we believe that all women across the globe are entitled to quality reproductive care. Their lives, their children's lives, and the basic fabric of society depends on this. Because of this, Della B. is partnering with Saving Mothers a 501©3 organization dedicated to eradicating preventable maternal deaths and birth-related complications in the developing world.
Founded and run by medical professionals, Saving Mothers centers on educating and empowering women so they can become active participants in their reproductive health. Saving Mothers provides Safe Birth Kits, Postpartum Hemorrhage Kits, Surgical Interventions, and also educates local healthcare providers through a 16 week training program to ensure that women in low-resource areas have access to the quality of care they deserve.
To help Saving Mothers in their mission, Della B. will donate $1 for every gown sold to support this life saving work. Together we can help save mothers around the globe.
