Christy Turlington: Chilly Stroll With The Kids

Christy Turlington takes a chilly walk with her kids

Christy Turlington and her children Finn, 7, and Grace, 10, braved the cold weather with friends in New York City on Saturday (December 7).

Last week Finn was seen with dad Ed Burns heading to school.

In her interview with Origin magazine – Christy talks about her organization Every Mother Counts.

She explained, “I am focused on raising awareness about maternal health and the work that Every Mother Counts (EMC) does to make pregnancy and childbirth safe for all moms. EMC was born out of a documentary film I made in 2010. No Woman No Cry is about the status of maternal health around the world. We filmed four women in four countries: Bangladesh, Tanzania, Guatemala, and the U.S., all at critical junctures of their pregnancies.

“My motivation for exploring this subject was quite personal. I survived a potentially life-threatening childbirth-related complication after delivering my daughter, Grace, ten years ago. I learned that hundreds of thousands of girls and women die each year due to similar and often manageable complications. They die because they don’t have access to critical maternity care that could easily save their lives. Once I discovered that the majority of these deaths were preventable—as many as 90 %—I was inspired to further investigate the issue. What resulted was No Woman No Cry.”
