It shouldn’t cost life to give life

Every year, 300.000 women and 5 million newborns die to causes related to pregnancy and childbirth. Nearly all of these deaths happen in low- and middle-income countries, and close to 90% of them can be prevented if the woman gives birth with qualified help from a skilled birth attendant.

Maternity Foundation is a Danish NGO that works to ensure a safer childbirth for women and newborns, everywhere. We use innovative and mobile health solutions and programs to improve maternal and newborn health in low- and middle-income countries.

Maternity Foundation is behind the Safe Delivery App, a mobile training tool for skilled birth attendants, which is being rolled out across Africa and Asia.

Maternity Foundation works to improve maternal and newborn health. We develop and integrate scalable programs and digital solutions that empower birth attendants, pregnant women and new mothers in low- and middle-income countries.

A world where no woman or newborn suffers preventable disease or death related to pregnancy or childbirth.


In response to the global COVID-19 pandemic, Maternity Foundation in collaboration with Copenhagen University, Laerdal Global, International Confederation of Midwives and UNFPA, the UN sexual and reproductive health agency have launched new digital content to equip skilled birth attendants in low-resource settings to protect themselves, mothers and newborns from the Coronavirus.
