Donate for Mothers: Labor of Love

September 2020

Donate for Mothers: Labor of Love is a collaborative effort between Vitalant, Colorado hospitals and the community to honor and support women who have experienced pregnancy-related complications. Many of these complications can often result in the need for blood transfusions. 
Throughout the month of September, select hospital blood drives and all Colorado Vitalant donation centers will be celebrating Donate for Mothers Labor Day. Donors can schedule their donation online or by calling 303.363.2300.
To honor mothers, we encourage individuals to join us at participating locations to donate in honor of a mom in their life.

Letter from Vy Rossi MD, OBGYN, FACOG

In partnership with: 

Kristin pictured with her family, suffered an amniotic fluid embolism during her second pregnancy. Kristin survived because she was able to get 26 blood transfusions. In a subsequent pregnancy complication during the birth of her fourth child, Kirstin received another 16 blood transfusions to save her life.
