A few months ago @mtv approached us, along with @blackmamasmatter to partner with them on a maternal health campaign timed to mother’s day. when it comes to saving the lives of mothers everywhere, we know it’s going to take all of us, working together, so we jumped at the chance. with @lenawaithe at the creative helm, their campaign “save our moms” launched today. we are proud to support this initiative which we hope will help ensure black mamas get the services, care and support they need and deserve. please share! @everymomcounts#saveourmoms#everymothereverywhere#withoutmom#mothersday
Mother’s day everyday with these two. i am so grateful for the care i received throughout both pregnancies and the support i got before, during and after the births of my children. without access to quality, respectful maternity care, i may not be here today. thank you to my doula @amybrowncoaching and midwife #elizabethboyce and #jacquesmoritz the ob who backed them. and to my husband who has been by my side since and who backs me daily so that i can be the best version of myself in this role of motherhood. 🙏🏽 #mothersday@everymomcounts#withoutmom 📷 @pamela_hanson
Shoutout to @corybooker champion of maternal health who reintroduced the mommies act (maximizing outcomes for moms through medicaid improvement and enhancement of services act today) we stopped by his office to thank him yesterday, coincidentally while he was filming a mother’s day message. 🧡 thank you for your leadership, senator!
Thank you @lewismillerdesign for bringing such beautiful attention to @everymomcounts today in central park at the bear statue (79th & 5th). this is the first wednesday of mother’s month and this statue represents the beauty & strength of mothers, much like the #orangerose symbol of maternal health, when supported and protected, moms and families can bloom and thrive. for every post of a photo of this mama bear with #lmdxemc@lewismillerdesign will donate a dollar to @everymomcounts . this world needs all the mamas bears we can get so let’s love and protect them, shall we? special thanks to two very special mama bears @patricialansing & @melissatberger 🧡🙏🏽🧡
Happy birthday #audreyhepburn this photo was originally taken for an editorial for @vanityfair which never ran. probably because it was shot in black & white. eventually an italian magazine published the photos. i was 17 or 18 at the time and excited about every opportunity to work with and learn from the amazingly talented photographer #stevenmeisel and his team at that time #francoisnars and @oribecanales.@andreltalley styled the shoot and we recreated some of our favorite audrey looks and moments on screen in #breakfastattiffanys but with a downtown twist. we shot this portrait in front of #towerrecords on broadway, instead of in front of @tiffanyandco 🖤
Today, may 1st, is the beginning of mother’s month. this is a joyful time for some and a painful one for others. this is dedicated to those mothers who are no longer with us, as well as their families, especially those who graciously gave us permission to share their stories with the hope of keeping more moms safe and healthy throughout pregnancy and childbirth.
Congratulations to all the @runteamemc finishers at the @bsimevents today. i was so proud of you all and honored to have you on my team. special shoutout to our partners @citizensofhumanity & @anthropologie for helping to make this awesome weekend in big sur possible. with all of your love and support @everymomcounts can help make pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother, everywhere! 🙏🏽🧡
