In honor of Mother’s Day, Dr. John Martin will be hosting a discussion with a panel of Butterfly Global Health partners who are committed to building solutions for maternal health in low-resource settings. Every year, over 300,000 women die from avoidable complications due to childbirth - 99% of them reside in developing countries.*

Join this webinar to understand why so many women die unnecessarily and what can be done to reduce this number. The discussion will cover the following topics:

  • Importance of maternal health on a global scale
  • Ideas and challenges for improving sustainable healthcare networks in developing countries
  • Applications of POCUS for OB and maternal health in low-resource settings
  • In-person and remote training programs for healthcare workers in low-resource settings
