Midwives for Haiti works to teach Haitian midwives the skills they need to work in an environment that is often inhospitable to the needs of a new mother and child. By sending American and European midwives train local midwives in country for 10 months, students can in turn offer pre-natal, labour and post partum care to these very vulnerable women and babies.
Why did we choose Midwives for Haiti?
- They are already making excellent use of the Maternova products they have but they desperately need more.
- Haiti has the highest infant and maternal mortality rate in the Western Hemisphere.
- The ripple effects of the 2010 earthquake are still being felt, even though the world's attention has shifted elsewhere.
