Maternity Worldwide is a charity which works in low-income countries to help women and girls access the high quality maternal health care they need to be able to give birth safely.

Having a baby should be a time of great joy and hope. But every year across the world 287,000 women die in pregnancy and childbirth. That’s one mother dying every 2 minutes, 800 each day. These women do not need to suffer and die; most lives could be saved relatively easily and cheaply. Find out more  »
