Maternity Houses


The Maternal House is a strategy promoted by the World Health Organization in order to reduce maternal and perinatal mortality, especially in rural areas. The Maternal House is a fully conditioned space and close to a Hospital, where pregnant women with obstetric risk remain during the last weeks of their gestation. As soon as the woman starts labor, she is transferred to the hospital, avoiding the delay of a long and difficult displacement from her community. During their stay, women receive their own gestational care, are given a balanced diet (in many cases improving their initial nutritional status), participate in health education workshops, family planning, etc. We have implemented two Maternity Houses in Rwanda in Nemba and Ruli. We currently support the development of the activities of these two Maternal Homes.
