Why Work For Us?: 

We are Saving Mothers because no woman should die giving life. Saving Mothers is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to eradicating preventable maternal deaths and birth-related complications in low-resource settings.

Each year, more than 300,000 women and girls die from complications of pregnancy and childbirth. That’s one mother dying every two minutes.  The vast majority of these deaths are due to lack of access to basic sexual and reproductive health care and 75% of these deaths could be prevented with low-cost interventions. We are an organization of doctors and allied professionals that work with country governments and local organizations to improve maternal health care in resource-limited settings. We design innovative, evidence-based programming that we customize to the specific needs of communities and bring biomedical technologies where they are most needed.

Saving Mothers was founded in 2009 by Dr. Tara Shirazian. Having worked in various development contexts as an Obstetrician/Gynecologist, she came to believe that tackling the most intractable inequalities in maternal health demanded an integrative, global vision for care that valued women’s lives equally regardless of their location or ability to pay. Based in New York, she grew the organization to include the country’s leading doctors in the field of maternal health, dedicated to bringing the expertise of physicians and surgeons to areas with the most urgent and unmet need for women’s health care. Saving Mothers empowers women in resource-limited settings by training their local medical providers, bringing life-saving medical technologies to rural hospitals and clinics, and providing reproductive health education.
