Safe birth. Even here.

Celebrating Safe Birth

Nowhere in the world is the risk of dying in childbirth greater than in disaster settings. Here, one in five women are likely to be pregnant. Mothers and babies are cut off from health care and exposed to trauma, malnutrition, disease and violence - putting their lives in great danger.

Maternal deaths soar in disasters - yet they can be prevented. The international community must be made aware of the urgent needs of pregnant women in crises settings, so that more can be done to save lives. Please help us raise awareness, by sharing the good news of a safe delivery from a disaster location!

Baby boy 10/1/2012

Born in Syrian refugee camp in Jordan.

Nisreen is a 30 year-old Syrian refugee residing in Cyber City, Jordan. She gave birth to her son Mohammed on October 1st. She delivered her baby with the help of UNFPA’s midwife, Um Ahmad Ayyad, whom Nisreen describes as a “saving angle”. “When I was pregnant, I used to come to the clinic twice a day and ask the same questions, but Um Ahmad never complained,” Nisreen said. “She treats us like a mother, provides us with advice and even visits us to check on our health from time to time.”
