The first student project of UM Crowd is a fact! Meet Maddalena Argiropoulos. She aims to research how the lack of a cross-cultural approach in health care leads to a high maternal mortality rate, discrimination and increased health care costs. Into the world: make birth beautiful and safe for everyone.
Student project about birth
How did your journey begin? What is your birth story? For many people birth is a beautiful experience and treasured memory. However, this is not always the case. Each day 830 people die during or soon after giving birth. Many are left with traumatic memories. Especially for pregnant people in low-income countries getting professional care can be scary and inaccessible, because their local cultural wishes and needs regarding birth are often not respected in the health care system. How can we improve this?
Help Maddalena raise the €3.000 to start this project and make maternal health care accessible and safe to empower people and their communities!
