  • Our Story
    we don t do this who will Midwives For Haiti became a registered 501 c 3 nonprofit organization in 2006 The area where we work is typical rural Haiti The poverty is wide and deep Only the best houses have metal roofs and concrete floors Most homes have dirt floors and roofs that let in light and rain Our first training site was an hour s walk to the hopital a decaying structure without running water electricity toilets or showers The maternity wards were staffed by one obstetrician and one midwife At night there was no one to care for patients With so much in short supply few women were coming to the hospital because they did not feel safe there Today the hospital still looks worn and is decades past its useful life but it is adequately staffed by 16 Skilled Birth Attendants all graduates of the Midwives For Haiti program Electricity and water are available most days and medication shortages are infrequent There is still much room for improvement but the hospital is now a place where lives are saved and learning occurs thanks to the support of not only Midwives For Haiti but also the Haiti Ministry of Health and Partners in Health an NGO healthcare provider In 2014 alone our SBAs and students attended over 2 200 births at Ste Therese Hospital We began the Mobile Prenatal Clinic because the women of rural Haiti were not receiving the maternal care they required Once we were able to upgrade from the pick up truck to a custom built Jeep we were able to extend our reach to the areas surrounding Hinche We now host 20 pre and post natal clinics each month in the Central Plateau region of Haiti and provide 6 000 patient visits annually The
