Maison de Naissance, (MN), “Home of Birth,” sponsored by Global Birthing Home Foundation, is a modern maternity center supporting healthy mothers and healthy babies in Haiti with high quality medical care and ongoing community oriented support.

Thanks to the generosity of our donors and volunteers, Maison de Naissance has delivered over 4,700 healthy babies, and conducted more than 128,000 consultations since 2004.  We provide all of our services at no charge to an impoverished community in rural Haiti whose residents could not otherwise afford or access them.

Our challenge is to prevent maternal and infant deaths.  Maternal and infant mortality rates in Haiti are among the highest in the world. Our strategy has been to recognize the barriers which deny healthcare to the poor and strive to overcome them.  The three most common barriers to receiving quality health care in impoverished communities are accessibility, financial, and cultural (education and superstition).  Maison de Naissance provides accessible (transportation provided), free, reliable healthcare for women and babies in a culturally acceptable and welcoming environment.  We employ innovative technologies to ensure quality care, and produce measurable outcomes, that can be tracked month to month and year by year.
