Birth Attendant

When Myriam was pregnant with her third child, she joined Compassion’s Survival Program at a local church. Home births without attendants are common in her remote community in Ecuador’s Andes. But according to UNICEF, the presence of a skilled birth attendant can reduce the risk of death during delivery by 20%. That’s why gifts from generous friends like you help save lives. When Myriam went into early labor one frigid night, she knew to call Flor from the Survival Program. Flor hired a van and driver to pick up Myriam and hurry her to a hospital, where doctors had to perform an emergency C-section. Thank you for helping baby Valentina arrive safely into the world!
