We see a world where a professional, well-trained, knowledgeable midwife who could provide unlimited Tender Love and Care (TLC), comfort, right amount of respect, to every element in the community especially during child birth to women.
Our mission is to provide a means for midwives to have unlimited access to trainings, facilities, resources, and support that would help further their knowledge and enhance their capacity to handle all the health care needs of a woman, and to successfully deliver a child and his mother through a childbirth.
- Leadership: Midwives are the strong leaders of the community when it comes to child birth, maternity care and child care. As a responsible part of the community, we see to it that they get all the knowledge and training they need, and they deserve.
- Respect: Proper knowledge in midwifery decreases the possibility of child and mother mortality rate post birth. We give them our utmost support and trust in dire moments of delivery.
- Suitability: Every culture has their own way of midwifery training. We promote this to all level and strive to maintain what is contextually appropriate for each and every culture.
- Collaboration: All elements of the society, both local and international, must come as one in providing the professional needs of midwives, including but not limited to the up-to-date knowledge and facilities that aid in childbirth, and the after care of every child in the society.
Now more than ever, the world needs more midwives. Midwives not only save lives, they provide cost-effective, culturally appropriate and locally accessible maternal and newborn healthcare. According to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) State of the World’s Midwifery Report, up to 3.6 million maternal deaths will be avoided each year in 58 developing countries when midwifery services are upgraded. Still, the UNFPA estimates that an additional 350,000 midwives are lacking to meet the target of achieving 95 per cent coverage of births by skilled attendants by 2015, as required under the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
