Mother and Daughter

Ethiopian Woman

I met this beautiful Ethiopian mother at a Lie and Wait House where she waited with her daughter below who was days within giving birth. In rural Ethiopia, some women are hours on foot from the nearest midwife or hospital. The lie and wait house is a place where woman can wait to deliver and be near a health care facility. It has saved many lives.
