Why I support Every Mother Counts

Right after I gave birth to my daughter in 2003, I saw a photo on the front page of the NYTimes of a woman holding and looking at her baby in a town far, far, away. I felt that same love. Same.

At 40, I planned to birth at a hospital, then changed mid pregnancy to the Elizabeth Seton birthing center in NYC. But 3 months before my due date, Elizabeth Seton, the only free standing birthing center in NYC, closed due to insurance escalation costs. I was then able to birth at home with a midwife. My health insurance company gave me the run around initially, but eventually they covered the cost.

I was lucky. I had choices, support, and insurance during one of the most vulnerable and deeply meaningful events in my life.

Please join me in supporting the work of Every Mother Counts.
