I am one of the founders and the director of MamaBaby Haiti (Mama Baby International) where I have opened two thriving birth centers with a third on the way where we provide free prenatal, birth, postpartum and newborn care as well as a midwifery school. Haiti has the highest maternal and neonatal mortality rates in the Western Hemisphere and we are working with our Haitian team to reduce that.
Haiti has captured my heart and I love my time there and the beautiful safe havens we have created at our birthing centers.
If you would like to get involved in our work in Haiti go to the MamaBaby Haiti website for more information.
Please watch the video below to learn more about our vision.
