Helping Babies Survive-Safer Births

In Haiti, for every 1,000 births, 60 babies will die in the first month of life; 30 will die directly after birth. Others suffer brain damage and are permanently impaired. In Haiti, only 37% of births are attended by a doctor, nurse, or midwife.

HUFH has trained more than 850 matrones, traditional birth attendants, and 350 medical professionals in the life-saving skills of Helping Babies Breathe and continues to “train the trainer,” increasing the ripple effect of this training exponentially.
