Help us promote healthy pregnancies and healthy babies


Meta: 20

PROGyn is a non-profit organization dedicated to education and exchange of knowledge among healthcare providers of women’s health and patients. In Puerto Rico, many women face complications during their pregnancy, which leads to preterm births, cesarean births and maternal or fetal mortality. MATERR, MATernal Education and Risk Reduction, is a patient-oriented prevention program aiming to reduce maternal medical complications leading to morbidity and mortality. MATERR teaches future mothers to identify risk factors for conditions such as hypertension / preeclampsia and empowered them to have a healthy pregnancy through adequate prenatal care. MATERR was designed for the future mother, creating language-sensitive medical educational materials focused on signs and symptoms pregnant women should be able to identify and notify their healthcare provider.

PROGyn also developed MATERR App, a mobile application created by Puerto Rican healthcare professionals and rooted on evidence-based medicine. This application is a guide that accompanies the future mother throughout her pregnancy, providing information and weekly advice on how to take care of herself according to her gestational week. The user can write notes and record her weight, glucose levels and blood pressure. Furthermore, MATERR allows storing scanned patients test results, which would be electronically accessible. Therefore, serves as a back-up to paper and electronic medical records during critical events such as natural disasters.

Your donation will help continue our educational efforts developing materials, upgrading MATERR app and facilitating access to services for pregnant women in Puerto Rico. Donations: Link for online donation: Check payable to: PROGYN, Inc.
