Mission

Maternl is dedicated to the human dimensions of maternal and child health care, to mothers and families who have experienced infertility, miscarriages, stillbirths and neonatal deaths and to all children lost through global conflict and conflagration.

Maternl is conscience, purpose and mission driven to address the unmet needs for all in need of comfort, healing and solace, in particular, mothers and families who have experienced infertility, miscarriages, stillbirths and neonatal deaths.

Maternl is an instrument to advocate, heal, comfort and share by addressing maternal, newborn and child health needs and access to care through a unique and original portfolio of poems, pre-natal tools, thoughts, a caring community for pregnancy and pregnancy loss and a personal / public forum ( Ephemeris Project ) for health professionals-primarily health professional students-to share thoughts on the human aspects of caring. Maternl acknowledges that there remains inexorable suffering which accompanies tribulations not only from inevitable limits of new medical technologies but from pervasive disparities which exist to deny all to have access to and to be recipient of one standard of care; disparities defined by the social determinants of health, limited or no access to care, unconscious bias, lack of advocacy and "avoidance and dismissal rather than involvement and immersion".
