“Imagine a world where mothers take as good care of themselves as they do their children and a world where mothers are so supported they’re able to do that.”
Every 2 minutes, a woman dies in labor. Around 98% of these deaths are preventable. Armed with knowledge about this stark reality and her own personal experience with childbirth complications, Christy decided to pursue a Master’s in Public Health at Columbia. She made her directorial debut with the documentary “NO WOMAN, NO CRY”, which tells the stories of pregnant women and their caregivers in four countries. Christy also founded non-profit “Every Mother Counts”, which sets out to make pregnancy and childbirth safe for mothers. On her spare time, Christy practices yoga and runs (she’s finished 6 marathons).
