Midwives For Haiti is a 501(c)3 non profit organization. Our mission: Reduce maternal and infant mortality rates in Haiti by teaching midwifery skills. Enhance maternal health by providing regular prenatal and postnatal care, including preventative services by training midwives. Provide safe, clean places for women to give birth. Incorporate care of the newborn, vaccines, dehydration treatment and prevention along with breastfeeding support with maternal care.
Our Core Values: Genuine partnership: We will strive to be in genuine partnership with those who share our vision. Education: We will deliver education that enables critical thinking and competent autonomous practice. Compassion: We will embody the compassionate service that is an essential characteristic of quality healthcare. Faith: We will act with the belief that change can occur, one person at a time, and through the efforts of small groups of people who believe it can.The program has graduated 5 classes skilled birth attendants. We employ 2 full-time instructors at our site in Hinche, Haiti, but rely on volunteer support (CNM’s, CPM’s, L&D RN’s, WHNP’s, and ObGyn MD’s) to serve as preceptors and supplement patient care provided by our graduates in the maternity unit of the hospital and mobile clinics. Volunteer groups of 2-4 individuals go to Hinche each week, on trips that are fully financed by each volunteer
