NON-MEDICAL PARAPROFESSIONALS

Birth and Postpartum Doulas

It is unlikely that a birth doula’s skills would be used for direct labor support. However, depending on time of year, they could be asked to teach a module on labor support to our students, provide extra lactation support at our referral hospital, Ste. Therese, or go on a home visit with one of our staff or other volunteers. All transport is provided, and a translator will be available.

IBCLCs

Lactation specialists are often needed to provide support in the hospital, at home visits, and at community clinics. IBCLCs may also be asked to teach breastfeeding support to our students, or in a continuing education module for our staff.

Childbirth Educators

Childbirth educators can put their skills to use in community clinics, presenting simple health education, or occasionally teaching our students at the Nadene Brunk Eads School. There is also a need for teaching students how to impart information concisely and effectively, as they will spend much of their time teaching mothers and families.

Social and traditional Journalists

Do you love helping get the word out? We have an ongoing need for social/traditional media content, especially photos and video. There are so many tales to tell here in Haiti; if you have a gift for storytelling, come on down!

Others

Do you have a passion for an aspect of global maternal health that we haven’t touched on? Perhaps you love research or conducting quality assurance interviews, or organizing medical supply closets? We are open to your ideas! Get in touch and we can see how your skills can further our goals.
