Every 90 seconds a woman dies in childbirths somewhere in the world.
With a population of 10 million, Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. As a result, Haiti is the most dangerous country in the Western Hemisphere to give birth. Most of these maternal deaths are caused by eclampsia, sepsis, and postpartum hemorrhage (bleeding). In other words, most of these deaths are preventable!
In July 2018, Nurse Love Sandra joined our team! She graduated from Midwives for Haiti in 2017. Love Sandra is the second midwife in Dèsarmes, playing an essential role in our fight against maternal and infant mortality.
In addition to providing prenatal, delivery and postnatal care to expectant mothers; she will also oversee the community and teenage girls outreach programs.
We invite you to be part of making an impact in the lives of women and families in Dèsarmes, Haiti!
