Tragically, giving birth in Haiti is extremely dangerous for most women and girls. Haiti remains the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere and has some of the highest infant and maternal mortality rates in the world.
We are in the beginning stages of opening the Redeem United Maternity Center. Our prayer is that we can wage war against the dim maternal healthcare in Haiti, by providing excellent, early medical care, health education, nutrition support, and compassionate love and support. This will in turn reduce the maternal and infant mortality rate which will also prevent many children from becoming orphans.
When we have the funding to open the center, we plan to offer prenatal care, labor and birth, postpartum care, and care for infants and mothers falling ill in the first 6 weeks postpartum. All care will be provided by Certified Midwives and Nurses with the majority of the care provided by Haitian staff.
