Maternal health resources/charities

Hope this is allowed - you all seem to be the font of much knowledge.

I'm on a group working to create a resource/activity pack for an organisation for girls and young women (aged 5-26) about the Millennium Development Goals. We're really struggling with number 5 - about improving maternal health - and I was wondering if anyone here could point me in the direction of some resources/charities dealing with maternal health? We're looking more for groups that work with/for women in developing countries and activities that can present the issues surrounding maternal health in a way that's accessible to girls who are living in a totally different world to the world where the progress needs to be made.

If it helps prompt minds, the goal covers access to pre and post natal care, skilled birth attendants, access to safe abortion and contraceptives, and postponing first pregnancy.
