Mother’s Heart is the first and only crisis pregnancy counselling service available in Cambodia. Their vision is to provide unconditional love, medical care and support to women facing crisis pregnancies and to see women empowered with choices, so that they can make the best decision for their future and that of their babies.
Cambodia has one of the highest maternal mortality rates in the South-East Asia region, with 5 women dying every day during childbirth. While more than a third of Cambodian women who die from pregnancy related causes die from unsafe abortions.
Through Mother’s Heart, every woman is able to make an informed decision on what is best for her and the future of her baby. It also gives single women access to pre-natal, delivery and post-natal medical care, housing, an allowance, vocational training and job placements, access to day care, parenting classes and counselling.
