Re:Birth is almost one year old. We've heard and shared wonderful testimonies and I'm so thankful to be on this journey.
I have to say, I'm most thankful for what's going on in Malawi right now. Our friends Edward and Edna have been distributing brochures and sharing about Re:Birth with expecting women.
Birth is much different in Malawi than America. For starters, they have one of the highest maternal mortality rates. My heart has been to do more than just send books and brochures, but not fully understanding birth practices have made it difficult to put an action plan together.
Then, I realized I'm not the only one who doesn't understand birth in Malawi. Most of the western world is probably clueless to the struggles women face. So, I've asked our friends to start interviewing and documenting birth in Malawi from the perspective of women and birth professionals.
The results will be compiled in a book to help raise awareness and support. So far, the results have been stunning.
Please consider sharing about this project and purchasing the final book. 100% or the proceeds will go back to Malawi.
