Mother Health International

Patient Leader

Mother Health International (MHI) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to respond and provide relief to pregnant women and children in areas of disaster, war and extreme economic poverty. We are committed to reducing maternal and infant mortality rates by creating culturally competent, sustainable and holistic birth centers, supporting basic public health measures and projects using the midwifery model of care. We work alongside traditional midwives to create best practices that work toward our goals of access to comprehensive maternal health care, education and the facilitation of positive childbirth experiences. With every healthy birth there is a benefit for the communities that we serve and the world as a whole. Earth Birth Centers are country-specific, locally sustained maternity and resource centers staffed by local midwives. Mother Health International helps to physically build structures, develop culturally competent protocols, and support traditional midwives. Creating spaces where women can access comprehensive care and also join in community restoration efforts is intrinsic to our mission. Our outcomes make it clear that our model works to reduce maternal and infant mortality. Simultaneously, we combat the violence and trauma that women often experience giving birth in overcrowded and understaffed hospitals.
