I have visited Maison De Naissance's facility on the ground in Haiti and seen first hand the many women lined up for well baby checks, and the delivery rooms in full service. The community around the center has so much pride in the work being done there that they have even become advocates for the center as well. The best part the services are all free to the patients and no on is turned away. 1st world medicine in the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Fiscally responsible, and accountable for all spending. Perhaps one of the most efficient ways to help the people of Haiti. Programs so strong that they are used to teach other centers around the nation.

Maison de Naissance opened in 2004 with the intent of breaking down barriers to prenatal care and safe delivery for women in rural southern Haiti. After almost 8 years and over 3500 deliveries, no mothers have been lost in a region where maternal mortality is distressingly common. Though initially the concept of American physicians, the protocols and procedures have been adapted by the Haitian staff of expert certified nurse midwives. Constant effort to support the local community by hiring local builders and workers, purchasing supplies in the nearby town, and interviewing patients, neighbors and community health committee members has produced a clinic and delivery service which are prized by the national health department as the reference for maternity care in Haiti. Next steps include expanding HIV care to include case management and nutrition, and integrating assistant midwives into the care team.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Continue to enhance the professional development of the administrative and clinical staff so that they may become more and more independent of outside decision making and policies.

There is something very pure and deeply touching about the sense of relief a mother has knowing so many others value her and the life of her child. Follow MN. It will warm your heart.

Maison de Naissance was started by two doctors in Kansas City who wanted to ensure that women in the southwestern peninsula of Haiti had access to professional healthcare at the time of delivery. Their efforts to bring modern standards of healthcare to the poorest of the poor have had a dramatic effect, reducing infant mortality rates in the region by 75%. The hospital is staffed entirely by Haitians with the exception of a single ex-pat clinical director.

Since the fall of 2004 Maison de Naissance has delivered nearly 3,000 babies and conducted over 42,000 healthcare visits with women and their babies.

In Haiti, women typically have to bring their her own medical and surgical supplies and pay for medical care in advance, before being admitted to a hospital for delivering a child. Maison de Naissance provides its services free of charge.

The Great!
