Giving mamas and babies of Haiti more than a fighting chance.

No woman or child should ever die because of where they live.

Haiti has the highest infant and maternal mortality rate in the Western Hemisphere.

We’ve set out to change that. Here’s how.

MamaBaby Haiti is a non-profit birth center, health clinic, and midwifery school located in Northern Haiti that opened in 2010. We provide a safe place for Haitian women to receive compassionate and respectful care at the hands of skilled midwives. No one is turned away and every morning  you hear the waiting room of MamaBaby break out into singing as over 30 women start their day waiting to be seen by the midwives. Every night you hear the rap rap rap on the gate as women come in labor to the sanctuary and safety of MamaBaby birth center to have their babies.

In 2017 alone, our Haitian midwives attended, 5026 prenatal appointments and 452 births.

NO MORE MWEN REGRÉT SA

After the January 2010 earthquake in Haiti, several midwives traveled there to provide disaster relief and maternity care. Their hearts were touched in so many ways. They sadly learned to say “I am sorry, your baby has died” in Creole over and over again. Realizing the huge need for midwives and access to maternity care, they committed to return and open a birth center and midwifery school to empower the women and families of Haiti.

Why free healthcare?

59% of Haitians live on less than $2.44 a day.

Where there is severe poverty, mothers sometimes have to choose between food for their family or having a skilled attendant at their birth.
