Pregnancy and Childbirth
When women have the knowledge they need and the power to act on it, pregnancy and childbirth are a cause for optimism and hope. In many parts of the world, though, pregnancy and childbirth are clouded with fear, uncertainty and danger.
Women and Children First works with partners to establish women’s groups where women can to learn how to care for themselves during pregnancy, recognise the danger signs and obtain the support and services they need. We monitor and evaluate the impact of that work and have good evidence that this grassroots initiative significantly reduces the risks to mothers and their newborn babies.
