Women throughout the world deliver their babies at home, alone and unassisted. Other times, they deliver in facilities that are understocked in equipment, medications and professional resources. In both instances, when complications arise, disaster ensues. Babies die, women die, children are orphaned and families are broken. Madagascar is no different. A woman’s lifetime risk that she’ll die in childbirth in Madagascar is 1 in 45.
The Sarobidy Maternity Center is slowly and passionately working to change this– one mother and one baby at a time.
Sarobidy is the word for precious in Malagasy. Founded in 2013, the heartbeat of the Sarobidy Maternity Center is two-fold. First, that women and babies would have healthy outcomes during this precious time in their lives. Second, that women would come to know that they are precious in the sight of the Lord and they would come to a life-saving knowledge and relationship with Christ.
We’re looking for two licensed midwives to join a team of Malagasy and foreign midwives at the Sarobidy Maternity Center to provide quality and compassionate prenatal care, laboratory and ultrasound services, safe labor and delivery support as well as postpartum care and health education to women in the community.
