MABAProject wants to address the high maternal, infant mortality, and illness rates during home deliveries in rural, isolated villages of Bangladesh. The lack of proper medical attention, resources, nutritional information, and sanitary conditions is prevalent throughout many parts of the country. Setting up a clean home environment during childbirth and practicing healthy habits before and immediately after the delivery may prevent many post-birth illnesses. The detrimental effects of inadequate health care and knowledge are only intensified by the widespread illiteracy prevalent among women, who are or plan to become mothers, as it limits their access to information regarding safe pregnancies and their ability to effectively communicate their health concerns.
