Nigeria is one of the most dangerous places in the world to give birth and to be born. According to UNICEF, a woman’s chance of dying from pregnancy and childbirth in Nigeria is 1 in 13.
One of the underlying causes of the high maternal and infant mortality in Nigeria includes limited availability of timely and reliable health information for decision-making and poor access to and use of health facilities. In addition, there remains a lack of collective community knowledge on safe and healthy pregnancy and infant care.
Mamalette is an early stage social enterprise that connects pregnant women and new mothers to proven and evidence based life-saving information through our network of Mamalette groups all across Nigeria.
