Imagine being in labour, needing medical attention and knowing it would be at least 20 hours before an ambulance would arrive to give you the medical attention you need.

In Sierra Leone, birth is a dangerous passage. Pregnancy, birth, and postpartum complications put the mother and baby in serious jeopardy.

5 Risk Factors

  • Lack of accessible healthcare

Birth should be a beginning, not an end
