what can i do to help?
Thank you so much for your interest in using your experience to help further the cause and bring attention to accreta. Here are some ways you can help:
Spread the word
Get involved in Accreta Awareness Month every October and share our accreta page which explains what placenta accreta is, the risk factors, and increasing rates. Sponsor an accreta awareness kit to be sent to a hospital of your choice, or get one for your own use to spread the word at local events.
Patient stories are a critical tool in building a community and making change. National Accreta Foundation receives requests by media, researchers and other organizations for patient stories, speakers, and representation. If you’re interested in opportunities to use your placenta accreta, increta or percreta story to improve maternal health, add your story to our bank here.
NATIONAL ACCRETA FOUNDATION Gear
Visit our store to purchase NAF gear and show your commitment to #preventaccreta. Send us a picture of you in your NAF shirt and tell us about the conversations you’re starting and the awareness you bring to accreta!
90% of placenta accreta mothers require blood transfusion, and 40% need more than 10 units of donor blood. Donate blood or host a blood drive to help ensure the next accreta mom has access to the blood products that may be needed for her care.
Are you making change in your community?
Did you donate blood? Speak at a local event? Visit moms at your delivery hospital? Tell us about what you’re doing for the cause! We’d love to hear about it and feature your work on our social media channels. Send us a note and photo at email@example.com or via our contact form.
