Meet Mary and her daughter Elen. Elen was born 10 years ago after her mother, Mary, needed a caesarean delivery at the maternity unit set up by Maternity Worldwide in Gimbie, Ethiopia. Mary needed to have a caesarean delivery as she had previously had one for the birth of her other child so was at higher risk.
Elen was born safely and we were lucky enough to meet her 10 years later as her mother, Mary, now works at the hospital as a nurse! Mary has also assisted Maternity Worldwide volunteers working in the hospital to help other mothers give birth safely.
