VISION


GoMidwife exists to see birth workers equipped and released throughout the nations to teach and serve women during the childbearing years in rural, crisis and developing situations. Our focus is to use birth work as a tool to restore dignity, decrease mortality and express perfect love.

OUR FOCUS


Our encompassing objective is to impart understanding of the role families play in development. This is seen specifically in the context of mothers and babies as they have the greatest opportunity for positive changes leading to lower maternal and child death, advancements in nutrition within the entire family, and a large influence on the next generation. The aim will be to teach skills and appropriate technologies in order to reach these women effectively while training trainers to continue this work in communities across the developing world.
