Aastrika works towards the implementation of high quality, ethical, evidence based maternity care for expecting mothers. Their work is to place the physical, psychological, and emotional well-being of the mother-infant duo at the centre of all care. Their work is conducted through advocacy and impactful partnerships, aimed at creating awareness about the maternal health sector. Aastrika’s vision is that every woman receives the right treatment at the right time — high quality, respectful maternity care which is neither ‘too much, too soon’ nor ‘too little, too late’.
Why are they the right choice for others:
- They have adopted a collaborative, multipronged approach to ensure education about, advocacy for, and implementation of midwifery in the health system.
- They train midwives at scale so that every woman has access to skilled care can reduce neonatal and maternal mortality.
- Aastrika Sphere (Societal Platform for Healthcare) is their comprehensive, free-to-use digital platform that works to make information and knowledge widely available to mothers and mothers to be.
- They promote a system where mothers can participate in their own care, take informed decisions, and remember the birth experience with pride, joy, and a sense of fulfilment.
