CNN's 'Hero of the Year' Helps Pregnant Women 29393

CNN has named its "Hero of the Year," and the winner is an American midwife who has helped thousands of impoverished Indonesian women have healthy pregnancies and births.

"Mother Robin," as Robin Lim is called by the locals, offers free prenatal care, birthing services, and medical aid to women who could otherwise not afford such care.   Lim's work is motivated by the staggeringly high maternal and infant mortality rate in Indonesia.
