The March for Moms/Rally to Improve Birth is an event to bring attention to the need for greater investment and attention to maternity care. One in every three Americans is born through major surgery—twice as many as are medically necessary. At the same time, we have the highest rates of maternal death and injury, the lowest birth weights, and the widest disparities in the entire developed world. Along with the worst paid family leave policies. The United States can do better and it's why our community joins thousands of others rallying on this same day around the country. Our local rally will be a family friendly event open to the public.
