Review for International Midwife Assistance, Inc., Boulder, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

International Midwife Assistance has been critical in the founding and development of Teso Safe Motherhood in Soroti, Uganda. Sub-Saharan Africa has the highest maternal mortality rate in the world. The loss of a mother (and often with her the new baby) is a tragedy that affects not only the immediate family but the extended family, the village, and the country. Children who lose their mom are less educated than their peers from intact families, and are less stable and successful in their employment. Teso Safe Motherhood shows the way mothers lives can be preserved. I am a certified nurse midwife and family nurse practitioner and I have volunteered for International Midwife Assistance since 2006, in Afghanistan and Uganda. Their projects are examples of the very finest care under difficult situations. I recommend International Midwife Assistance unequivocally.
