Making Pregnancy Real and Relevant Globally

Improving preconception and prenatal health is not just an important issue in the U.S.—it is a critical need in every corner of the globe. You can help give all people access to vital prenatal health educational resources by translating them into 92 different languages. This will make free resources available to more than six billion people!

For each language, your donation will:

  • Translate major portions (about 30,000 words) of EHD's website, including the Little One Pregnancy Place, DVD Documentation Center, Multilingual Illustrated DVD, Image Gallery, Movie Theater, Prenatal Timeline, Embed EHD Video page, and more.
  • Create a professional audio track for The Biology of Prenatal Development DVD narrated by a native speaker, allowing website visitors to experience clips from the program in their native tongue. These same broadcast-quality narrations will also be used for television broadcast opportunities and DVD distribution around the world.
  • Produce an online version of EHD’s “When Health Begins” brochure/poster which introduces EHD’s “When does health begin?” campaign and explains the importance of preconception and prenatal education
  • Prepare promotional materials to help introduce these resources.

As each language is completed, EHD can promote these prenatal education resources among government, public health, and education leaders as well as international health organizations, teachers, doctors, and the general public in countries around the world.
