MHI AT A GLANCE
Midwives are an essential part of community healthcare. Unfortunately, Haiti remains an incredibly dangerous place to be pregnant, with statistics showing Haiti to have the highest mortality rate in the Western Hemisphere for both mothers and babies. More midwives, who are well trained, compassionate, and God-fearing, and more safe and respectful maternity centers are desperately needed in Haiti.
Our goal is to continue to invest in Haitian midwives and develop Maternity Centers that will provide both job opportunities and a safe and caring environment for women. Midwives are special and trusted members of a community, with a unique opportunity to minister. We encourage and equip all the midwives we work with and work alongside to be actively praying for and ministering to the women whom they serve.
