As Mother Day approaches (in just 3 days!), Rebecca Minkoff and Christy Turlington Burns co-hosted a breakfast to celebrate Every Mother Counts, Christy Turlington Burns non-profit organization dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for mothers around the world. The event also introduced the newest addition, the “Bowie Baby Bag”, co-designed by Rebecca Minkoff and Christy Turlington Burns just in time for Mother’s day.
“One woman dies every two minutes as a result of complications during pregnancy and childbirth. As a mother of two, I wanted to raise awareness around this important issue.” Minkoff said of the collaboration with Every Mother Counts. “I am thrilled to be working with Every Mother Counts; together we created this bag to increase awareness around maternal health and how pregnancy and childbirth can be made safe for every mother.”
The bag, named after Rebecca’s baby girl is available now and for each bag sold, 20% of the proceeds will be donated to EMC to support its efforts to improve global maternal health and reduce maternal mortality worldwide.
