Vitamin Angels' Global Prenatal Initiative

Vitamin Angels will be spearheading a global effort to reduce newborn mortality rates by scaling up its prenatal multivitamin program to meet the needs of 50 million women annually by the year 2030. With an estimated 7,000 newborns dying daily per data released by UNICEF, Vitamin Angels is rallying support to address the pressing need. By increasing the distribution of prenatal multivitamins to existing and new field partners across its more than 1,600 field partners, the organization will support improved birth outcomes and save newborn lives on a global scale.

Prenatal Malawi

DIET: During pregnancy, nutritional needs increase to meet the demands of both the pregnant woman and her growing baby. When moms don’t have regular access to healthy foods, the risks to her and her baby intensify.

Prenatal Mother and Infant

SUPPLEMENTS: Prenatals help support healthy pregnancies, prevent anemia, promote fetal growth, and ensure that babies are born at a healthy birth weight. They are crucial to the health and survival of the growing baby and to the health and well-being of the mothers.


Mothers Face Global Health Challenges

Wherever they are, moms share a common focus: making a better life for their children. They may take on very different challenges, but each woman's nutritional needs increase during pregnancy to support her health and her growing child. Moms living in developing countries or with low incomes are the most vulnerable to malnutrition.

They make meals out of what’s available, feeding their children before themselves. They make traditions that unite their families, passing down wisdom to future generations. They make painful sacrifices that, more often than not, go unnoticed.

Some pregnant women instinctively eat soil to meet their bodies increased need for nutrients – a condition is known as "pica."

Poor families may be forced to sell their nutritious crops for income and purchase foods that are cheaper and less nutritious.

Prenatals can be particularly important in countries where gender inequality denies women access to nutritious foods and appropriate care during pregnancy.

Starting at the Very Beginning

Giving daily prenatal multivitamins to pregnant mothers helps ensure healthy pregnancies and positive birth outcomes.

After moms give birth, we encourage them to breastfeed and help them understand how and when to introduce solid foods

We help build a foundation for good health starting from conception and carrying through the first five years of life.

We are working to dramatically scale up distribution of prenatal multivitamins to even more moms in the U.S. and around the world.

“Giving multiple micronutrients to women during pregnancy is one of the most critical public health interventions for women and their children. It prevents babies from being born too soon and too small, both of which increase the risk of early death.” Dr. Robert Black
