Birth is a dream

Every year, in Sub-Saharan Africa, 280,000 women die of pregnancy and birth complications.

Given the role of women in African society, the death of a mother is a human tragedy. It affects not only the immediate family but also the entire community.

Many of these deaths could be prevented if women were able to access properly equipped facilities and above all qualified medical assistance.

Birth is a dream is a photographic project that aims at testifying how difficult life still is for an African mother.
