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.
Maison de Naissance has just celebrated its 10th anniversary. Thanks to the generosity of our donors and volunteers, Maison de Naissance has delivered over 4,700 healthy babies, and conducted more than 132,000 consultations since 2004. We serve an impoverished community in rural Haiti whose residents could not otherwise afford or access these services.

Our commitment for the next 10 years is to reduce poverty in this community while maintaining the highest quality of primary care services to women and their infants.

Our first challenge is to prevent maternal and infant deaths.  Maison de Naissance provides accessible (transportation provided), reliable healthcare for women and babies in a warm and welcoming environment. Fees are charged on a sliding scale, set by the community, starting at free for those who simply cannot pay. Our outstanding all-Haitian staff are highly qualified and committed to listening as well as caring. We employ innovative technologies to ensure quality care, and produce measurable outcomes that can be tracked month to month and year by year.
Our second challenge is to “work ourselves out of a job” in this community through economic development programs. We have expanded our mission to partner with women and their families in a variety of programs to increase their income and food security, and for MN to be a self-sufficient community operation by the year 2024.  Global Birthing Home Foundation will then expand its mission to other impoverished communities of the world.
