Created as part of an initiative organised jointly by the White Ribbon Alliance for Safe Motherhood® and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), Stories of Mothers Saved is a collection of individual stories of women who did not die needlessly in pregnancy or childbirth - due to a key action taken by her, her family, the community, a health worker, a political leader, or others. It is an online resource featuring stories - told through photography, written stories, film, and audio - that highlight what works and what must be done at all levels: from saving money, to securing transportation to the health facility when labour begins, to having access to family planning services, to receiving an emergency caesarean section, to attending a well-equipped and staffed facility because the government prioritised maternal and newborn health.

Cell Phones Help Save the Lives of Mothers, Infants, and Children
 
According to this article, published in November 2010 on the Global Health Council website, simple technology like cellphones can be used to save the lives of mothers in childbirth and improve the care of newborns and children, reaching underserved populations in remote areas. "More advanced mobile technology can do even more, such as checking on patients, keeping records, improving diagnosis and treatment in the field, and letting community health workers consult general practitioners and specialists for guidance."

Obstetric Fistula Digital Stories Facilitator's Guide

Published by Fistula Care in January 2010, this facilitator’s guide accompanies a series of digital stories, called Learn from My Story, made by and about 11 Ugandan women who share stories about how fistula has affected their lives. The stories recount hardships and celebrate achievements related to their daily struggles with pregnancy, loss, and relationships, as well as their search for safety, acceptance, and dignity. The guide is designed to help those who wish to have conversations about fistula and to educate groups such as health care providers, women with fistula, community members, and policy makers. It includes discussion questions and key messages for each story.
