  • Advocate for compassion for birthing women
  • Childbirth education and doula support during childbirth
  • Educational workshops for women, families and teenagers
  • Collaboration with traditional midwives
  • Life saving skills training program

  • Doula program
  • Doula training
  • We contribute to improving birth outcomes
  • We contribute to reduce maternal and newborn mortality rates

One of our main missions is to create conscience about Humnized Birth and to advocate for Human Rights during and around childbirth.

The experience of childbirth affects the life of a woman, her self-esteem and her immediate bonding with the newborn. If the women experience support and love during the birth process, the relationships within families will improve and women will become more empowered. It is something that seems so simple, but the effects can last a lifetime and be passed down for generations.
