Pregnancy Twinning works via partner organisations in Malawi and Nigeria through teams of ‘Mother Buddies’. Our Mother Buddies are trained, local volunteers who are all living with HIV.
They had to fight to get the maternal health they needed when they were pregnant and are now determined to help other women in the community access vital health services and give birth safely.
The women we work with have with specific vulnerabilities, like living far away from medical support or having HIV. Pregnancy Twinning builds relationships between our Mother Buddies and mums-to-be, so that when advice is given, it is by those who have faced the same challenges and overcome these barriers themselves.
