Maison de Naissance, (MN), “Home of Birth,” sponsored by Global Birthing Home Foundation, is a modern maternal health center supporting healthy mothers and healthy babies in Haiti.   Our 100% Haitian staff provides high quality medical care in a welcoming and culturally appropriate environment, coupled with ongoing community oriented support, to ensure that our patients receive the best care possible.

Recently released statistics from WHO and the Haitian Dept. of Health and Population show that in the years 2011-2013, MN provided an average of 43% of all family planning services and 22% of all prenatal services in a region (SUD Department, or South State) with a population of 705,000. Compare this to the population of 69,000 in our zone of service, and you will begin to understand how much MN does to serve mothers and infants and its community!

We could not have made this remarkable achievement without the dedication of you, our donors.  We offer you our most sincere thanks and best wishes for the holiday season!

Our 2014 Annual Report is available HERE if you wish to download a PDF copy.  You can read about our 2014 accomplishments, and key elements of our strategic plan, including economic development initiatives to ensure MN’s long term viability and eventual independence from charitable support.
