Advocate for Moms this Mother's Day
The Society is an official partner of the March for Moms, which takes place on Mother's Day in Washington DC. The rally will raise awareness of perinatal depression, maternal mortality, health disparities, preterm birth, and more.
Join us for a rally at the Jefferson Memorial at 1:00pm on May 14, 2017. There will be a great line-up of speakers and activities for the entire family.
If you are not in the Washington, DC area, you can get involved. We encourage you to:
- WRITE to your Representative and ask that he or she co-sponsor the Preventing Maternal Deaths Act. This bipartisan legislation would support state efforts to review individual cases and recommend local solutions to prevent these devastating outcomes.
- READ about SMFM's advocacy efforts for women and their families.
- ENGAGE on social media.
- SHARE our resources for women and their families with your patients.
- LEARN about the advocacy efforts of the other March for Moms partners.
