MamaBaby Haiti is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the health and well being of mothers and babies. Our mission is to lower the maternal, fetal, and neonatal mortality rate in Haiti. MamaBaby Haiti is formed by a group of midwives and naturopathic doctors who serve women and families out of their birthing center and clinic in Haiti. They provide free prenatal, birth, postpartum, and pediatric care, in addition to education and other life saving services.MamaBaby Haiti is opening a birth center in Cap Haitian in early November 2010. You can see pictures of the center, mid-construction, from earlier this year. I love the organization's vision for how the birth center will function within the community.
As you might have heard, there is a cholera outbreak in Haiti. MamaBaby Haiti is accepting supplies (IV fluids and electrolyte replacement powders) and cash donations. They are sending 14 volunteers to Haiti in the next few weeks. To donate, contact:
