1 MOM is 2 Many to Die
At 14 weeks pregnant, Maria’s heart failed and she and her twins died. In the 21st Century, in a respected university hospital, she died of profound malnutrition complicated by Wernicke’s encephalopathy (swelling of her brain due to vitamin B1 deficiency), Osmotic Demyelination Syndrome (ODS due to sodium deficiency), and sepsis.
1 MOM is 2 Many works to eradicate preventable maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality because Maria and her twins deserved better. All mothers and babies deserve a chance at a healthy future.
