Culture Matters: Why maternal mortality is so high....

Not long ago, a friend posted an article on the realities of maternal moralities in developing nations on her blog (Midwife to the World). Each time I read it, my heart sinks and my skin grows cold. It is true -- horrifyingly true. I saw this happen in the Philippines and I know it happens here in Africa.

Please read the story of Mrs. Y and you will see what I mean.

May this NEVER be true of our clinic!
