The Bump caught up with mama-to-be Daphne Oz (daughter of Dr. Oz and host of The Chew) to see how she’s working her healthy lifestyle into her pregnancy — and the incredible causes she’s supporting that bring awareness to healthier, safer deliveries all over the world.
The Bump: Congratulations on your pregnancy! Can you tell us a little bit about White Ribbon Alliance and Star Showers, the causes you’ve partnered up with to help moms-to-be in need?
Daphne Oz: Sure! White Ribbon Alliance and Star Showers works to bring everybody — from individual men and women, local organizations and also local and government authorities — together to create a really powerful voice that demands improvement to care before, during and after birth. The goal here really is to make sure that every mother everywhere has an opportunity for a safe, healthy and happy birth. Here in America, it’s not even necessarily a given that you can have a healthy safe birth. I have been very fortunate to have great maternal care and I feel like so many people that I know have been able to experience the best of what maternal care can be and it’s our responsibility to be able to ensure that right for mothers across the world.
