What is Maternal Mortality?
Most maternal deaths are preventable, as the health-care solutions to prevent or manage complications are well known. All women need access to antenatal care in pregnancy, skilled care during childbirth, and care and support in the weeks after childbirth.
It is particularly important that all births are attended by skilled health professionals, as timely management and treatment can make the difference between life and death for both the mother and the baby.
Muntada Aid’s Our Mothers provides vital lifesaving healthcare to expectant mothers, who live in poverty, in some of the most in need communities in Africa and Asia.
The impact of this project is far reaching; aiming to leave a lasting footprint not only on the expectant mothers that are treated through it, but also on the local medical staff who receive beneficial training from our experienced team, guaranteeing a future of more capable health personnel.
