Volunteer Overseas

Karen with Chaltu and twins - resizedBy volunteering overseas with Maternity Worldwide, doctors, nurses, midwives and other professional staff will have the opportunity to play a vital role in saving the lives of countless mothers and babies during childbirth now and for the future.

Whether you want to volunteer overseas by teaching medical staff in the health centres and hospitals, conducting needs assessments, improving and setting up new systems, providing community education on maternal health, carrying out crucial research or helping hands-on to safely deliver babies – there are plenty of opportunities available.

We are currently looking for:

  • A volunteer obstetrician who would be interested in spending 6-12 months setting up systems and procedures at our clinic in Malawi.  The role would also include training staff and performing emergency deliveries.  You will have at least three years of experience (including current or recent clinical experience) of dealing with high-risk pregnancies and complicated deliveries and are able to work autonomously with limited supervision.

To find out what it is like to volunteer overseas at our projects please read the blog written by our volunteers Karen and Jeremy who returned last Autumn after volunteering for a year in Gimbie, Ethiopia for us.
