March For Moms aligns the diverse voices of families, healthcare providers, policymakers, and partners to advocate for mother’s and families’ health, well-being and equal access to care. Watch the following video to understand why this work is so important.
What we do
Every year we gather in Washington, D.C. to bring together the diverse voices of everyone who supports the health and well-being of all mothers and their families.
Year round we work hard with families, healthcare providers, and policymakers to advocate for life-saving improvements in healthcare practices and better access to maternal healthcare.
We Raise Awareness
March for Moms shares the experiences of families impacted by severe maternal health outcomes as well as resources and information that can improve outcomes for moms, birthing people, and families.
March for Moms advocates for and amplifies community-led solutions and organizations that are leading the charge in improving outcomes for women, birthing people, and their families.
What I love about March For Moms is the connections we make that continue after the event and the collaborative spirit which enables us to help moms across the nation. March For Moms brings together stakeholders, and thought leaders and survivors and puts them on a stage together to visibly advocate at our Nation’s Capital about the important issue of motherhood morbidity and mortality.

Our mothers deserve better
The U.S. has the highest rate of mothers dying in pregnancy, childbirth, and within one year of giving birth than any other industrialized country. It continues to rise due to racial discrimination and a lack of access, information, and healthcare providers.

You can help us get the word out
The biggest reason we lose so many lives in pregnancy in the U.S. is a lack of awareness. You can help by educating your state and federal representatives, friends, and family on the issue of maternal death and how it can be prevented.
