About G the Midwife

Our annual family photo, taken in 2016 in the village of Bugnay.

My name is Georgia Gilliland Macad.

My family and I work with the tribal peoples of Kalinga, a remote area in the northern Philippines. This isolated area plagued with tribal wars is one of the most beautiful and untouched areas in the Philippines. Because of their isolation, the people living in this area have little to no access to medical care. Most of the pregnant women will deliver their babies at home on their own, without any prior prenatal care or attending doctor or midwife. Many of these women and babies die due to complications that would have been easily preventable with adequate care from a qualified midwife.

I am a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) and have spent a great deal of time over the last 9 years with the tribal peoples of Kalinga. Because of my love for the people as well as the obvious need, I decided to move permanently to Kalinga and set up a maternity clinic to provide Midwifery care to the tribal peoples in and around the capitol city of Tabuk as well as into the remote mountains of Kalinga.

The Philippines is a developing nation with extreme poverty and corruption and so, I am seeking to find sponsors from outside the country that would be interested in partnering with me for this cause.

I and the people of Kalinga would be so grateful if you would be interested in supporting this charity maternity clinic through the donation of medical supplies or financial support.

You can contact me at gthemidwife@yahoo.com. I would love to hear from you!

You are such an inspiration to me. I am in the Highlands of Guatemala, began formal midwive studies with a christian school in Arkansas. My goal is to train midwives here as the mortality rate for both mother and child is so high. At the moment we have 50 midwives that came to our first gathering. Some travel a great distance to learn. God bless your work and I will continue to pray for all your projects and needs…

Amazing to read about the work you are doing, I am a student midwife in the UK and was researching for a community profile assignment, and decided on the Philippines when I came across your blog FANTASTIC! – planning on doing my elective placement next year in Iloilo, who knows where my career will take me, but you guys are inspirational 🙂
