Improving lives of Women and Children in Innovative Ways.
The Foundation for Mother & Child Health UK working with two locally led sister organisations in India and Indonesia, aims to ensure every child reaches their potential and this is not hindered by lack of knowledge. We do this through provision of programmes improving knowledge around maternal and child health.
WHO WE ARE
We are a group of three sister organisations working to improve the health and wellbeing of mothers and children in the UK, Indonesia and India: FMCH-UK; FMCH-Indonesia and FMCH-India . Our mission at The Foundation for Mother & Child Health, is to create a world where every mother is able to receive the knowledge and support she needs for her children to reach their full potential - irrespective of her social, economic or religious background.
"A woman is the full circle. Within her is the power to create, nurture and transform" Diane Mariechild
ACTIVITIES IN UK, INDIA and INDONESIA
Working in collaboration with ForMed Films, parents, health professionals and other Not for Profit organisations, FMCH-UK co-produced a short animation to raise awareness of the importance of maintaining mental wellbeing during pregnancy and after birth. A new edit of "Perinatal Positivity" was launched in 2021 and subsequently several translated versions of the film were produced by FMCH UK and Chelsea & Westminster hospital, London. See below...
FMCH-UK collaborates with a number of different organisations to raise awareness of the importance of maintaining mental wellbeing in parents around the world. We are a proud member of the Global Alliance for Maternal Mental Health, a coalition committed to improving the mental wellbeing of women and their children in pregnancy and the first postnatal year (perinatal period).
