ABC News alongside the UN Foundation has launched the Million Moms Challenge, an initiative “that hopes to build a vibrant community that connects moms everywhere around things all mothers care about: the right nutrition to support their pregnancies, trained midwives to assist in safe deliveries of newborns, and vaccines that allow children to survive to celebrate their first birthdays and beyond”.
The challenge will be a part of weekly segments on ABC News, Good Morning America, World News with Diane Sawyer, Nightline, and 20/20, and will share stories of moms from all over the globe. Content on the Million Moms Challenge website “will provide a live, interactive forum for some of the nation’s top mom bloggers to share their stories and ideas through blogs and video posts in real time with moms and midwives in the developing world”.
The focus of the challenge will be on proper healthcare before, during, and after pregnancy as the baby grows and develops.
You can become a part of the Million Moms Challenge movement by signing up for the challenge on their Facebook page.
Johnson and Johnson will also donate $100,000 to organizations helping moms and babies across the world.
