Georgia is ranked 2nd worst state in the United States for maternal mortality.

WHY?

Many of these deaths occurred due to a lack of health care access & knowledge of needs during and after childbirth.

REALITY

Many individuals who have faced an unexpected or unwanted pregnancy do so without support or proper care. Others find life changing relationships when they encounter Christians who walk with them.
