Giving birth is one of the most dangerous moments of a woman's life if she lives in a place without a skilled birth attendant. Hundreds of women die in childbirth every day and the number one cause is the lack of a skilled birth attendant. Helping pay for the services of a skilled midwife means fewer mothers and babies will die during childbirth because of easily preventable or treatable complications.
