No Woman Should Die Giving Life
Maternity Foundation works to reduce the mortality rate for mothers and newborns in low- and middle income countries. We do this through effective, scalable digital tools and trainings based on evidence and field experience on safe delivery practices – and by implementing these through selected partners.
Maternity Foundation has developed The Safe Delivery App, a smartphone application that empowers skilled birth attendants to provide a safer birth for mothers and newborns – everywhere. The app provides skilled birth attendants with direct and instant access to evidence-based and up-to-date clinical guidelines on Basic Emergency Obstetric and Neonatal Care.
Through easy-to-understand animated instruction videos, action cards and drug lists, the app equips birth attendants even in the most remote areas with a powerful training and on-the-job reference tool. The Safe Delivery App is currently being used in more than 40 countries and has been downloaded over 47,000 times.
