Each of us that works in the field of midwifery knows that having a safe and amazing birth experience is a goal for our moms. We also know that around the world this is often not a reality. Far too many moms and their babies suffer due to a lack of skilled midwives and attendants being available. This summer we can begin to change things. An opportunity has opened up for the rapid growth of midwifery throughout the Pacific and Go Midwife is in a position to help shape the trajectory of this movement. Here are some of the details:

In the island nation of Samoa there will be a meeting this summer to put into motion a training program for midwives and skilled birth attendants. These women will not simply be practitioners in the field but will be trainers with the ability to multiply the number of skilled birth attendants across the Pacific, Asia, and Africa. Having locally trained women who are familiar with the language, culture, and people groups of their own lands immediately gives them respect, authority, and the ability to work in areas where Westerners often have limited or no access. Imagine one midwifery trainer teaching a group of five women who in turn teach five women. Keep this cycle going and it is not long before an enormous impact can be tangibly felt across the developing world.

We are asking each of you to partner with us in this. We have the contacts and are already working across the Pacific to make this a reality. Here is how you get to be part of the story: if each of our friends joins us in pledging $20 towards this global midwifery campaign we will have the necessary funds to get the project started, funded, and moving forward. That is less than one penny for every 3,000 mothers and babies that do not survive the birth process in developing nations. We need your help to help conquer this problem once and for all. Together we can make a difference.
