A Champion for Pregnant Women

Dr. Linda Burke (formerly Burke-Galloway) is a board-certified OB-GYN on a mission to prevent stillbirths and maternal deaths. Many years ago, during her residency training, she finished her shift and signed out a patient to an on-call colleague. The next day, she returned to work and discovered the patient had a stillbirth delivery. This was her 39-year-old patient’s first pregnancy, and Dr. Linda was infuriated and devastated. She has been on a mission to reduce preventable tragedies ever since. The first edition of her book, “The Smart Mother’s Guide® to a Better Pregnancy: How to Minimize Risks, Avoid Complications and Have a Healthy Baby” was ranked as the #2 best prenatal book by the Preeclampsia Foundation.

The Smart Mother’s Guide® Mission Statement

One death. One stillbirth. One near miss or sentinel event is one too many. 1 in 4 of all stillbirths and 3/4 of maternal deaths are preventable. If you are pregnant or plan to be pregnant in the future and don’t know what you don’t know, you are at risk. The mission of The Smart Mother’s Guide® is to change that. “Knowledge is power” and situational awareness saves lives.
