“We think of childbirth as a beautiful and joyous thing but for many, many women it’s extremely dangerous…” – Emily Watson

Here at Maternity Worldwide our vision is that every woman, regardless of where she lives, should be able to access safe and appropriate childbirth. Your kind support will help us to bring this vision closer. Please donate here – whatever you can give, will make a huge impact. Collectively, we can make a real difference now and for future generations.

It costs just;

  • £18 to sponsor a safe birth for a mother and her baby
  • £30 to empower a woman to become financially independent and the decision maker about her own sexual and reproductive health
  • £80 to provide a months midwifery training for one of our student midwives


Thank you for your generous and ongoing support, it is hugely appreciated!
