Help Us Raise Awareness to Save Mothers and Birthing People
Maternal sepsis is a life-threatening medical emergency defined as organ dysfunction resulting from infection during pregnancy, childbirth, abortion, miscarriage, or the postpartum period.
Maternal Sepsis Week is an annual observance to raise awareness of the unique signs and symptoms of maternal sepsis. We also dedicate this week to sharing survivors’ personal experiences and remembering the loved ones lost to maternal sepsis.
Each year Maternal Sepsis Week is observed the week of Mother’s Day. In 2023, it will be held from May 14th to May 20th.
Join Sepsis Alliance in raising awareness of maternal sepsis to save mothers and birthing people. Keep reading to learn how.
Sepsis Alliance recognizes that not all birthing people identify as mothers. We are continuing to evaluate terminology to be inclusive of all experiences.
