Midwives For Haiti: Uban Family

THE STORY:

MFH teaches Haitian women and men the midwifery skills that make them skilled birth attendants. The World Health Organization has found that skilled birth attendants make the difference between life and death for women and their babies. The setting for instruction is in central Haiti at rural clinics and a hospital. The Ministry of Health in Haiti has recognized that due to distance, transportation, and lack of information, many women do not get to medical facilities in time to save their lives. The chances of dying from childbirth in Haiti in 2010 were estimated by the WHO as 1 in 28, mostly due to pregnancy-induced-hypertension, eclampsia, sepsis, and postpartum hemorrhage.
Nicolle will be working in the clinics, attending births, and teaching/precepting the future generation of skilled birth attendants. Steve will be using his multiple skills doing whatever is needed: construction, setting up water filtration systems, fixing stuff, and anything else that is needed! Jake and Eli will help Steve, and volunteer in the orphanage.
