Did you know that the lifetime risk of a woman in Madagascar dying during pregnancy or childbirth is 1 in 45? Looking for a team of licensed midwives (Foreign and Malagasy) and a physician with obstetric/midwifery skills as we open a birth center on the northwest coast of Madagascar. The goal of the birth center is to provide quality prenatal care, safe labor and delivery support as well as postpartum care and education to young women in the community. We hope that the birth center will be the heart of a larger womens center which seeks to provide life skills, job training, education and hope to women, single mothers and widows. Seeking long-term partners for this exciting new ministry. For more information on this ministry: check out the website of Jamie and Alissa Shattenberg at www.redislandrestoration.com.
