Midwives for Haiti's goals are:
-- to reduce the high maternal and infant mortality rates by teaching midwifery skills;
-- to enhance maternal health by providing regular prenatal care, including preventative services by trained midwives;
-- to eventually provide a safe, clean place for women to give birth; and
-- incorporate care of the newborn infant, vaccines, dehydration treatment and prevention along with breastfeeding support with maternal care.
