Safe Motherhood Initiative 


ACOG District II and the Safe Motherhood Initiative offers thanks and recognition to Ryan Hansen and the Tara Hansen Foundation for their generous contribution to the work of the Safe Motherhood Initiative.

"The Tara Hansen Foundation is dedicated to advancing maternal health awareness in an effort to improve maternal healthcare. We believe that expecting parents deserve equal education on the risks associated with the mother as well as the child. By continuing to tell Tara's story, we feel it has the power to protect the lives of women and improve the standard of care for expectant mothers in the United States."
