A Warm Welcome

By Vicki Penwell | Executive Director

A warm welcome for a new little one
A warm welcome for a new little one

Babies born with the help of the Mercy In Action midwives in the Philippines receive a warm welcome, no matter the time of day or night! Midwives are always available to assist a woman in labor, and help make her journey to motherhood more comfortable and empowering. No pregnant woman is ever turned away for lack of ability to pay.

The midwives are trained in all 10 steps of the International MotherBaby Childbirth Initiative (IMBCI), which outlines their care as respectful and evidence-based, and as a part of IMBCI, they are also trained in the UNICEF 10 Steps of Baby Friendly Care, which supports breastfeeding.

Because of their training through Mercy In Action, our midwives proudly reported back from a training they attended in Manila recently:  "We already knew and were implimenting the best-practice information that was being taught in our continuing education training. We Mercy midwives were so proud we knew that already."

Your generous donations help us to support the local midwives here in the Philippines, so that they are able to give a warm welcome to every newborn baby in their care!

Happy MotherBaby pair
