In Part 4 of "The Making of a Midwife", Midwives for Haiti's 2013 class graduates. Juslène and 22 other students will go on to become midwives. Juslène explains she is eager to find work which is challenging in Haiti. She is passionate about putting her training to use. Nadene, the founder of Midwives for Haiti, believes that Juslène is a perfect candidate for a birth center, which Midwives for Haiti hopes to open this year. EMC is continuing to support the training of the 2014 class of midwives.

Every Mother Counts and Midwives for Haiti have teamed up to increase the number of skilled birth attendants available to assist pregnant women in Haiti. EMC's grant supports the training of 17 midwives for one year. Each midwife will go on to provide prenatal care to nearly 1,225 women and deliver 180 babies a year.
