Dear friend,

Obstructed labor is a direct cause of Bangladesh's high maternal and neonatal mortality rates.

In rural areas, over 90% of women give birth at home, at the hands of untrained birth attendants. HOPE aims to give women with high risk pregnancies, safe deliveries to save their and their children's lives.

When expectant mothers do not receive antenatal care, high-risk pregnancies – those at risk for obstructed labor, eclampsia, hypertension or other life-threatening pregnancy conditions – go unidentified, and there is no plan for emergency obstetric care.

When high-risk women deliver at home without a skilled birth attendant (SBA), they are at risk for post-partum hemorrhage (PPH), sepsis, obstructed labor, and obstetric fistula, all of which can result in the death of the baby or the mother.

With your support we wont let it happen.

Thank you for reading.
