THE STORY:

The lack of skilled obstetrical workers makes Haiti the most dangerous place in the western hemisphere to have a baby. According to World Health Organization Statistics, 670 women die for every 100,000 births. That rate is 60 times higher than in the US.


In the rural areas of Haiti only 76% of births are attended by someone without the training and supplies needed to make birthing safe.

Midwives for Haiti has been working since 2004 to train community midwives

Midwives For Haiti offers education and training in prenatal care and skilled birth assistance to Haitian nurses, so that they may better serve their fellow Haitian sisters, who too frequently are lost or lose their newborns in childbirth without such care.
