Project Alive & Kicking (PAK), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, was created after learning that each year 26,000 babies are stillborn in the United States alone. As our nonprofit has grown, we have learned there are so many different factors causing stillbirths, including umbilical cord issues, intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy (ICP), preeclampsia, diabetes, and more. Our goal is to provide expectant moms with information and materials they can use for the best care during their pregnancy.
PAK’s mission is to empower expectant mothers by sharing information and educational materials about healthy pregnancies, fostering an awareness of daily fetal movements, and guiding them with the actions they can take to help their babies come into the world thriving, alive and kicking.
As an organization, we are proud that PAK has been recognized as a leading voice in maternal and child health in such a short time. The Centers for Disease Control, for example, now lists PAK as a stillbirth resource on their website. In 2015, PAK was selected for the Huffington Post’s The Next Ten campaign for our work on the cause of “Reducing Maternal and Infant Mortality by Investing in Health Infrastructure.”
We love to hear from our moms! If our information has helped and supported you and your baby in your pregnancy journey, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
