Safe Delivery, Safe Mother

Safe Delivery, Safe Mother was founded by Mehreen Shahid, Annemarie Collins and Tinotenda Muchena. This new social venture aims to reduce maternal mortality in Pakistan by training Community Midwives to prevent postpartum hemorrhage through administering a safe and cost-effective drug, misoprostol. The three month pilot aims to train 100 CMWs within rural villages to effectively administer misoprostol, measure blood loss, and to change the communities’ perception by addressing socio-economic constraints. In the long-term, we aim to scale nationally by reaching high poverty rural areas with the highest maternal mortality rates, and play a critical role in reducing postpartum haemorrhage in Pakistan.
