August 3 marks the second annual #BumpDay, so the lovely ladies of Hollywood took to Twitter and Instagram to share snaps of their bulging bellies in order to draw attention to the worldwide issue!
#BumpDay's website explains:
"Over 830 women die every day as a result of pregnancy-related causes."
So, Jason Sudeikis' lady love, Nicky Hilton, Michelle Monaghan, and more went online to encourage fans and followers to support the Reach Every Mother and Child Act of 2015, which aims to "end preventable maternal, newborn, and child deaths by 2035."
See their beautiful bumps and their moving messages (below)!
#Ad Happy #BumpDay Mamas! @WhatToExpect Celebrating with #Diclegis (doxylamine succinate/pyridoxine hydrochloride) because it’s helped me throughout my pregnancy! Sharing my Diclegis bump in support of happy and healthy pregnancies. How cute are these little Diclegis tablets! - For Moms who are waiting for morning sickness to end, you should know that some women, including me, have it throughout their entire pregnancy. Thankful Diclegis is helping me manage my #morningsickness Ask your healthcare provider about Diclegis today! - For US Residents Only - Diclegis is a prescription medicine used to treat nausea and vomiting of pregnancy in women who haven’t improved with changes in diet or other non-medicine treatments. - Limitation of Use: Diclegis hasn’t been studied in women with hyperemesis gravidarum. - Important Safety Information Do not take Diclegis if you’re allergic to doxylamine succinate, other ethanolamine derivative antihistamines, pyridoxine hydrochloride or any of the ingredients in Diclegis. You should also not take Diclegis in combination with medicines called monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs), as these medicines can intensify and prolong the adverse CNS effects of Diclegis. - The most common side effect of Diclegis is drowsiness. Do not drive, operate heavy machinery, or other activities that need your full attention unless your healthcare provider says that you may do so. Do not drink alcohol, or take other central nervous system depressants such as cough and cold medicines, certain pain medicines, and medicines that help you sleep while you take Diclegis. Severe drowsiness can happen or become worse causing falls or accidents. - Tell your healthcare provider about all of your medical conditions, including if you’re breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed. Diclegis can pass into your breast milk and may harm your baby. You shouldn’t breastfeed while using Diclegis. - Additional safety information can be found at www.DiclegisImportantSafetyinfo.com or www.Diclegis.com. Duchesnay USA encourages you to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA.
