Barbara May Foundation | Nourish Baby

Around the world, one in 800 women dies from childbirth-related injuries. More than half of these are in sub-Saharan Africa.

Providing lifesaving maternal healthcare in Tanzania & Ethiopia

Established in 2009, the Barbara May Foundation (BMF) provides funding to Australian medical professionals Valerie Browning AM and Dr Andrew Browning. They run projects in Tanzania and Ethiopia that relieve the high incidence of death and extreme injury in pregnancy and childbirth. They provide safety, dignity and hope. 

Nourish Baby proudly donates $1 from every course purchase to the Barbara May Foundation. Each donation supports volunteer doctors and nurses, improve maternal health facilities and provide vital medical supplies.

Your purchase helps provide poor women, and those from remote areas, with quality maternal healthcare decreasing the number of women and babies dying during labour, or suffering injuries like obstetric fistula, during labour and birth.
