Anne Tounish, a midwife, was one of the 'magnificent seven' who took part in a campaign to raise £1million for maternity care in Bangladesh.
Anne, 45, a homebirth specialist working for Greater Glasgow and Cyde health board, was joined by Save the Children's ambassador, Myleene Klass, at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London to promote the Build it for Babies drive.
Save the Children aims to build seven new health clinics and help 3500 new-born babies in north east Bangladesh every year.
Anne was chosen to spearhead the campaign in Scotland.
She said: "It was my first time working for Save the Children and it was a real whirlwind.
"I got a phone call on the Monday and then the next week I was in London.
"Save the Children brought seven of us together from all over the country."
Anne has worked as a midwife in Glasgow since 1989 and has been a member of the home-birth team for three years.
She said: "In Scotland, if something goes wrong during a pregnancy, we dial 999, but in Bangladesh the women die.
"What I took away from my day in London was that it is all about raising awareness.
"I already do charity work in my community but I will really have a focus on Save the Children now.
"I've already been in touch with the head teacher of my daughter's school to talk about fundraising.
"We can always do something to help."
Save the Children's new ambassador, Myleene, has also visited Bangladesh.
She said: "Women in this region have to walk six miles and pay a month's wages if they want their babies delivered at a health clinic."
Douglas Hamilton, head of Save the Children in Scotland, said: "In the Habiganj district of Bangladesh there is a population of 400,000 people and only four health centres. There is a real need for facilities there."
