The waiting room in Hamlin Gorche midwifery centre is near completion!

Thanks to our amazing NZ supporters, women in this remote community will now be able to live near the Hamlin Midwives until they can give birth safely.

For women living in poverty in far-lying villages, transportation to a Hamlin Midwifery Centre during labour can be impossible. They have no choice but to give birth at home without medical care, facing childbirth injuries like obstetric fistula, stillbirth and even maternal death.

1 in 250 Ethiopian women still die every year of maternal causes.

By building rooms where women can come to live while they wait in the weeks before their baby is due, pregnant mothers can access the life-saving care of the Hamlin Midwives.
