Maternity Worldwide

Maternity Worldwide is a UK based charity which aims to save lives in childbirth in low-income countries by training and employing local midwives and medical staff, empowering women to become decision makers about their own health, providing maternal healthcare to rural and remote communities and improving access to health facilities.

The Maternity Centre in Kiryabutuzi, Uganda, opened in March 2017. Women who visit the centre to seek support during their pregnancy receive care from Senior Midwife Pauline and Junior Midwife Aziza, both employed by Maternity Worldwide. Since the Maternity Centre opened over 200 babies have been safely delivered.
