THE STORY:

Haiti needs more midwives out there educating, providing prenatal care, attending births, and following up with postpartum care: this work saves lives of mothers and babies and keeps more children out of orphanages. Midwives for Haiti trains Haitian nurses to become trained birth attendants, and then they go to work, and let me tell you they work hard, but they also need to be compensated for their hard work. Someone needs to pay their salary and many of the rural clinics and even the city hospitals have a hard time paying the midwife's salary. A working midwife will often be supporting a large extended family on her income, and I know more than one that has adopted children and other children and family dependent on her for food, shelter, education and survival. I have worked alongside the midwife students and the preceptors, and every one I ever met had a heart of gold who wanted to save lives and help make conditions better for their fellow women and families. I want to keep a midwife employed out in the field doing her/his hard work. I will receive updates and information about her/his progress and birth statistics. I will share those with all of you who help me with this great effort. Can you imagine living on $4,100 for a year? Come on, let's spread the love! :)
