1:1000, 160:1000, 1:100 sobering stats

some women live in places where there are so few midwives that the rate of attendance at a birth is 1 in 1000 per live birth.

some children have a 160 per 1000 kids chance of dying before they reach the age of 5.

some women give birth with the very real risk that they might be the 1 in 100 in their country to die in the process.

If I can give the gift of midwifery to these same women, I will have done my job well.

Evidence shows the simple changes that need to be made. The basic training that needs to take place.
