We work to ensure safer births for women and newborns – everywhere

It should never cost life to give life. But every other minute, a woman dies during pregnancy or birth. Every sixth second, a newborn suffers the same fate.  

Maternity Foundation is an international NGO that aims to end preventable maternal mortality, morbidity and harm. We do so by providing life-saving digital health solutions and innovative learning programmes.  

Our SafeDelivery+ programme is a digital, modular learning and training universe. It includes the award-winning  Safe Delivery App, developed with healthcare workers and based on research. The Safe Delivery App is a professional job aid and learning tool for midwives and healthcare workers. We combine the app with online learning in addition to remote and on the ground trainings 

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.

Our vision
A world where no woman or newborn suffers preventable harm or death related to pregnancy or childbirth.

Maternity Foundation is committed to upholding the human rights. We promote social justice, we believe in human dignity, and we respect for the equal rights of men and women. Therefore, tackling sexual exploitation and abuse is a top priority.

If you as a member of staff or as external party become aware or suspect a breach of conduct or of sexual exploitation or abuse you should report this in good faith and in full confidentiality via the email safeguard@maternity.dk. Our certified investigator will respond with 1-2 business days.
