What we do

Delivering Hope is the first organization to introduce the use of doulas in solving many of the problems surrounding birth, maternity and newborn care in Ethiopia. Doulas are a highly effective, low cost way to improve maternal health, decrease maternal and child mortality, and provide women with dignified, kind, compassionate care.

DHI Doulas

Doulas are trained professionals who provide pregnant women with relevant health care information, provide emotional and physical support to women before, during and after birth, advocate for the needs of a laboring woman, and ensure that the best interests of the woman are considered.

About Us

DHI is a faith based Christian non-profit organization that helps decrease maternal and infant mortality and improve overall maternal and infant health at a grassroots level. We do this by both directly training and also equipping partners who wish to train national Childbirth Educators  and Doulas. These birth workers then personally provide advocacy, education, knowledge, support, resources and compassionate and loving care to those most in need. Our mission is accomplished in 3 main ways: Implement, Partner and Fund.

Implement

Delivering Hope International piloted and directly supervised the implementation of a DHI Childbirth Education/Doula Program in Ethiopia. The Ethiopian program proved to be both a success and an incredible learning opportunity for DHI’s leadership.

Partner

DHI partners with NGO’s, ministries, missionaries and others who share a passion for maternal and infant health, and who wish to utilize and implement either the entire DHI CBE/Doula program model, or even just certain aspects. We provide all DHI training and program resources and curriculum, and we are available to help guide and coach those interested in developing a DHI based program.

If you would like to talk with us about a partnership, please contact us.

What is Delivering Hope International?


The Truth

These are not faceless statistics. They are mothers, wives, children, siblings. They feel love and loss. They need hope. They need us. We CAN help. You CAN help.

  • Percentage of the 536,000 mothers who die every year from complications of pregnancy and childbirth, that are mothers in developing nations. 99%
  • Ethiopian women who give birth at home without the assistance of a skilled birth attendant. Research shows that the most important intervention for improving maternal and infant health is attendance of a skilled birth attendant with midwifery skills. 90%
  • The amount of childhood deaths occur in rural areas of Africa and South-East Asia, within poorer and less educated families. 70%
  • Childhood deaths that could be prevented with simple family education and training, particularly regarding newborn care, breastfeeding and hygiene. 40%

Together we can make a difference.
