Every woman and girl who we help to give birth safely has her own story to tell. Sometimes, with all the statistics, it is easy to forget that each woman who gives birth is unique, with her own family, her own life, and her own baby. Here are some of their stories.
A vital part of our work is raising the skills of local doctors and midwives so that they can help women and girls in their communities to give birth safely. Two of our case studies also focus on ‘Raising Skills, Saving Lives’. Birhane’s story incorporates that of Lensa, one of the local nurses trained by Maternity Worldwide and who now plays a vital role in ensuring the health of mothers in the area. Aster’s story focuses on the vital work carried out by one of our volunteer obstetricians, Jeremy, whose skills were pivotal in enabling her to give birth safely.
