WHAT:

We are excited to introduce our newest initiative at The Heartline Maternity Center.

We have compiled eleven years of experience in holistic maternal health care in the developing world setting into a “how to manual.”

Our manual is called, The Starting Place: A Maternal Mortality Prevention Initiative.

We are seeking interested parties already doing year-round work in the Maternal Health Care arena in the country of Haiti to come to a three day class.

We will invite your participation in our Prenatal and Postpartum program days and spend several hours going over the model of care. Participants will review the manual with us and begin to learn about reducing maternal and infant mortality in a developing world setting. This pilot class will be conducted in English.

WHY:

We believe the model of the Heartline Maternity Center works. We want it to be duplicated the world over. The World Health Organization states, “83% of all maternal deaths, stillbirths, and newborn deaths could be averted with Midwifery Care, including family planning.” WHO also states, “Midwifery is a best buy investment.”

WHEN:

September 4-5-6, 2018. 9am – 5pm.

WHERE:

Heartline Maternity Center located in Tabarre, Haiti
(lodging and meals provided at no cost)

To request an application, please email: beth.johnson@heartlineministries.org

  • Applications are due August 12, 2018
  • Participants will be informed they have been chosen on August 15, 2018

We will be choosing a very small number of participants for this test class. We are offering this class free of charge because we are aware that we may have some modifications to make in both the manual and the class prior to it’s official roll-out.

For those interested but unable to consider this now: In 2019 and beyond, we will be offering the complete manual for purchase, we will open it to participants working in other developing nations, we will offer that in conjunction with the Starting Place class as well.

“When there are so many problems to address and the needs are great, what better place to start than with mothers and their babies?”
