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 two minutes, 800 each day.
These women do not need to suffer and die. Most lives could be saved relatively easily and cheaply.
We provide maternal health programmes to save lives in childbirth in Africa
At Maternity Worldwide we have a vision of a world where all women, wherever they live, can give birth safely and without fear. We need your help to make that vision a reality.
On average it costs just £15 to save a mother’s life during childbirth, whatever you can afford will help to make a huge difference.
