For every Mama Maya Baby Blanket purchased, we provide funding for at least one clean birthing kit and caregiver training to ensure that at least one other mama worldwide will be able to access a cleaner and safer birth. 

Birthing Kits

Birthing kits contain 6 basic items:

x  a plastic sheet
x  gauze squares
x  sterile scalpel blade
x  soap
x  gloves
x  string

They enable mothers to give birth in a cleaner environment, reducing post-natal infections for both mother and baby.

Training

The Birthing Kit Foundation (Australia) also funds training programs to educate birth attendants and community health workers. This complements kit distribution, empowers through education, and promotes sustainable change.
