In Part 2 of "The Making of a Midwife", we meet Gennette, a midwife, instructor and graduate of Midwives for Haiti, who also leads MFH's Matrron Outreach Program. Matrons attend 70% of births in Haiti,and in a country where preeclampsia and eclampsia are a leading cause of death for pregnant women, Midwives for Haiti works to educate women and their caregivers so women can have access to safe and healthy deliveries.
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.
