Your gift has an impact from the womb to the playroom. Provide a mum with prenatal classes and checkups plus support during and after the delivery of her little one.
The presence of a skilled birth attendant is one of the most strategic ways to save the lives of mothers and babies. In developing countries, the infant and maternal mortality rate is alarmingly high. In sub-Saharan Africa, a woman has a one in 38 chance of dying in pregnancy or childbirth. In Australia, the same figure is one in 9000*. This gift provides an expectant mum with the knowledge and support she needs to help her baby thrive during the critical first year of life.
