The rent on our birth center for the next six months is due November 1st and we need YOUR HELP. We need $6000 by November 1st and are hoping to raise the first six months of 2017's rent by the end of the year. Please consider partnering in this way so we can continue providing free care to our mamas and their babies.
MamaBaby Haiti is a non-profit birth center and health clinic located in Northern Haiti. We provide a safe place for Haitian women to receive compassionate and respectful FREE prenatal, birth, postpartum, and gynecological care at the hands of skilled Haitian midwives.
This care will decrease their risk of dying from what should be a normal life event: pregnancy and birth. Haiti has the highest infant and maternal mortality rate in the Western Hemisphere. It is our core belief that no woman or child should ever die because of where they live.
Why free healthcare? 59% of Haitians live on less than $2.44 a day. Where there is severe poverty, mothers sometimes have to choose between food for their family or having a skilled attendant at their birth. 1 in 263 women who have a live birth die in childbirth or the immediate postpartum period, and 1 out of 14 Haitian children die before the age of 5. 98% of these deaths are preventable. MamaBaby Haiti is saving lives every single day. Join us.
In 2014, our Haitian midwives attended, 5,789 prenatal appointments, 452 births, 1272 postpartum visits, and 83 family planning appointments; 2015 is proving to be just as busy of a year!
