The Foundation for Advancement of Haitian Midwives is committed to educating Haitian midwifery students and the Haitian school and associations that serve them. The 1st annual conference is in March 2016. Techniques that reduce maternal and infant death in Haiti will be passed on to Haitian women in the rural areas that desperately need maternal and child health care. As a nursing student, doula & Haitian American this is an extremely important cause to me. My family and I know the impact of losing a loved one due to lack of access to care during labor. Each race I run from October to December 2015, is in memory of my aunt. She lost her life from postpartum hemorrhage. I appreciate all your support! Thank you.
