The Tara Hansen Foundation is dedicated to increasing maternal health awareness in an effort to improve maternal health care. We believe expecting parents deserve equal education on the risks associated with mother as well as the child. In addition, it is our belief that today's healthcare providers need to be reminded of the consequences women face during and after childbirth.
"We do not expect women to die from childbirth in this country," says Ryan Hansen, founder of The Tara Hansen Foundation. "Sadly it happens more than we know." Join the conversation and spread the message on Facebook.
