  • Why Haiti?
    in Haiti are attended by a skilled provider As a result H aiti 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 Haiti also has the highest rates of infant and under five mortality in the Western Hemisphere Children who have lost their mothers are up to 10 times more likely to die prematurely than those who have not UNFPA Why Skilled Birth Attendants Skilled attendance at all births is considered to be the single most critical intervention for ensuring safe motherhood UNFPA Due to a lack of resources infrastructure and workforce attrition Haiti has a severe shortage of skilled care providers According to UNFPA there is one doctor for 8 000 inhabitants one nurse for 6 000 inhabitants and one midwife for 50 000 inhabitants After the devastating earthquake in 2010 the government midwifery school closed and an already dire shortage of healthcare providers became worse and there continued to be a significant emigration of health workers Training Haitian nurses to become Skilled Birth Attendants is critical to reduce maternal and infant mortality Although Haiti has made great strides in reducing maternal mortality since the global implementation of Millenium Development Goal MDG 5 Haiti needs an estimated 563 more Skilled Birth Attendants to reduce maternal mortality by 75 and achieve the 2015 target Ensuring skilled attendance at all births backed by emergency obstetric care when needed would reduce maternal deaths by 75 That figure rises to about 90 if skilled health personnel play a full role during pregnancy childbirth and after birth UNFPA The Making of a Midwife Part 1 from Every Mother Counts on Vimeo Why Mothers Ensuring safe motherhood means healthier

  • Projects
    part time Haitian Skilled Birth Attendants to work in 20 rural villages throughout the Central Plateau Our midwives typically see between 500 600 mothers each month providing prenatal or postpartum care education vitamins and iron supplements and treatment for intestinal worms Women with chronic hypertension a common problem in Haiti receive anti hypertensive medication Each patient is tested for HIV syphilis gonorrhea chlamydia and malaria Patients with HIV or syphilis are referred to the hospital for further testing and treatment Patiets with gonorrhea chlamydia or malaria are treated by our SBAs Without the Mobile Prenatal Clinic these infections would go untreated and risk the health and lives of mothers and babies In 2014 we provided 6 163 patient care visits to rural women and 25 emergency transports div uk panel data uk grid margin Maternity Center at Ste Therese Hospital When we began working in Hinche in 2006 only one obstetrician and one midwife staffed the local Ste Therese Hospital And they only worked day shifts If you were a laboring mother when the hospital was closed care was not available until 8am the following day and not at all on the weekends Since many of the women coming to the hospital at this time were only doing so because they required emergency care many mothers died Over time as we trained and graduated more students word spread throughout the community that the hospital was now a safe place to give birth In collaboration with the Ministry of Health who runs the hospital we began employing several of our graduates to staff the maternity ward 24 7 We now pay the salaries of thirteen Skilled Birth Attendants working there utilize the hospital as the site of our clinical training and support the maternity center with further resources and supplies Mothers no longer have to worry that they will be turned away that there will be no one to care for them or that they won t have access to life saving medication In 2015 alone over 2 200 births were attended by our students and Skilled Birth Attendants at Ste Therese Hospital Postnatal Care Program In collaboration with Haiti s Ministry of Health and Population and Haiti s Kidz our Postnatal Care Program ensures that mothers and newborns at Hospital Ste Therese are thoroughly evaluated before discharge given excellent education and scheduled for follow up visits in our new postnatal clinic With this program we hope to increase the number of patients receiving postnatal care at Hospital Ste Therese from 1 to 100 The Postnatal Care Program is filling a critical gap in the contiuum of maternity care at Ste Therese as postnatal care can mean the difference between life and death for moms and babies Since launching the program in July 2014 93 of the mothers and babies born here now receive important postnatal care Matròn Outreach Program Matròns or Traditional Birth Attendants attend an estimated 75 of deliveries in Haiti most of which are outside of medical facilities
