Global Birthing Home Foundation
July 15, 2011

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!

through the volunteer work of my husband, who has visited the clinic many times.

Ways to make it better...

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

donate a lot more money so they could expand their zone of service.
