Learn more about donating blood
Shortly after giving birth to her daughter Agatha, Kate experienced a complete uterine inversion and started losing blood very quickly. She was rushed to the OR where she underwent two surgeries.

Blood transfusions help patients in need, and they are especially critical for women who experience pregnancy-related complications. Every day, Vitalant needs to collect about 5,300 blood, platelet and plasma donations, delivering lifesaving blood products to patients in hospitals coast-to-coast.

Mothers have a vital role in life, and blood donors do too.

Shortly after giving birth to her daughter Agatha, Kate experienced a complete uterine inversion and started losing blood very quickly. She was rushed to the OR where she underwent two surgeries, resulting in the need for 14 units of blood and blood products.

Kate has had a long road to recovery, but she is grateful for those who gave blood so she could take care of her beautiful daughter.

“As a donor you’ll likely never know the impact of what you’re doing, but never doubt that you are actually saving someone’s life,” Kate said. “It makes a bigger difference than you can ever imagine to someone you’ll never meet.”

Schedule a blood donation  in honor of mothers, and you can help vulnerable patients--and moms--who depend on blood transfusions.

I believe the idea that my blood could help save a life is so amazing. Even though I am not a trained medical professional, I can still make a positive impact on others.
