The Afghan Midwives Association continues its useful activities for the health of mothers and newborns in Afghanistan, now AMA established the 2nd Midwife led Care Center in Mohammad Ali Janah Hospital.

A midwifery model of care provides the woman with individualized education, counseling and antenatal care; continuous attendance during labor, birth and the immediate postpartum period and ongoing support during the postnatal period.
The three pillars of this center services are as follows:
Woman to women services and respectful service
Midwife led services
Evidence based services
The inauguration ceremony was attended by representatives of ministry of public health, Community Shura, community elders, the leadership of the Afghan Midwives Association, the director of Mohammad Ali Janah Hospital and the hospital’s health staff.
