Every year around 290,000 women die due to complications in pregnancy and childbirth. 90% of these deaths are preventable. Can you imagine facing difficulties during birth in an environment where access to safe anaesthesia and surgery is limited? Happy Birth Days is an insight into everyday childbirth in Tanzania, and into the Safer Anaesthesia From Education (SAFE) obstetric anaesthesia course which brings Tanzanian anaesthesia providers together for training on how to address the major causes of maternal mortality and give the safest possible care. Happy Birth Days defines access to safe anaesthesia and surgery, not as a luxury, but as a basic human right - with the potential to save the lives of hundreds of thousands of mothers and babies around the world.
