Yet every year, more than a quarter million women die in pregnancy and childbirth. Not only that, but every year, 1.2 million infants are stillborn, one million die on their first day of life and nearly three million die before they reach one month old. Sadly, 99 percent of these deaths happen in low- and middle-income countries. These women give birth at home, often alone, and usually without medical care.
One Heart World-Wide has developed an unique model to prevent the deaths of mothers and their infants in remote rural areas of the world. Simply put, we surround each mother and infants with a “Network of Safety” to ensure that they will survive pregnancy, childbirth and the first months of life.
