Olivia is a midwife serving in the Republic of Congo, helping to empower Congolese women to take ownership their health, their children’s health, and to realize the important role they play in their communities as mothers. By providing women with competent and compassionate antenatal, perinatal, and postpartum care, Olivia desires to walk alongside women during their pregnancies to support them and share the love of Christ. Providing women with a safe place to give birth and receive health education and timely interventions can greatly reduce maternal and neonatal mortality in an area where women and babies die from preventable pregnancy-related complications. Midwives have the unique privilege of serving women and their babies during a very important and special time in their lives, and often have a front row seat into the challenges, struggles and fears many face. Olivia seeks to show each of her patients that they are valued and loved by God, and how the gospel can transform lives.
