The Texas Department of State Health Services is committed to helping to prevent maternal mortality and morbidity in our state through education, resources and awareness. The Hear Her Maternal Health Campaign aims to empower women to know their health risks and warning signs and speak up when they have concerns. The campaign is also dedicated to encouraging everyone, including providers, caregivers, friends and family to listen to her concerns and take action.

We all have a role to play in preventing maternal deaths. The loss of one mother is one too many. Learn about warning signs and discover how you can help below.
