Founded in 2008, Shanti Uganda improves maternal & infant health throughout East Africa using a unique collaborative care model that utilizes registered Uganda midwives as primary care providers and Traditional Birth Attendants as labour support.
The Shanti Uganda Birth House is a solar powered maternity center on one acre of land in the Luweero District of Uganda. The Birth House provides mother-centered care throughout pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period and is staffed by a team of Ugandan midwives, traditional birth attendant and lab technician. The Birth House acts as a community hub from which Shanti Uganda runs family planning education, prenatal education, prenatal yoga, a Community Garden Program, and Teen Girls Workshops.
