CNN Hero: "Mother Robin"

"Mother Robin" is a midwife in Indonesia, providing prenatal and postpartum care to some of the most impoverished women in the world.  A lot of these women would be unable to receive care if not for this midwife and her team. 

Did you know that in some hospitals in Indonesia a woman cannot take her baby home until her hospital bill is paid?  Sometimes, they wait outside for hours and hours until they can get in to feed or diaper their own baby.  This is heartbreaking!

It is an inspiring story of how one woman is making a a big way!  If you get a chance, head over and read it!
