The princess seemed eager to listen to the stories of the locals as she joined them in the hospital
Princess Mary traded her usual high glamour for a more casual look as she paired a breezy paisley blouse with navy slacks and suede slippers for her engagement.
Her Royal Highness was initially due to visit the country alongside Jensen in January this year but the trip had to be postponed until April following a terror attack in Ouagadougou.
However, she was finally able to visit the country to promote the powerful message at the end of last month.
During her visit the princess visited the labour wards in local hospitals where she greeted new mothers and spoke with doctors.
Jensen said that he was proud of the princess’s efforts and was keen to get the message across.
He said: ‘I’m very pleased that the Crown Princess, who is deeply engaged in women’s health, and I have managed to depart for Burkina Faso.
‘Denmark supports Burkina Faso because it is one of the world’s poorest nations in which thousands of women die in connection with pregnancy and birth every year.
‘It’s completely unacceptable that women are dying in 2016 while giving new life.’
The visit comes ahead of The Women Deliver 2016 Conference to be held later on this month in Denmark.

The conference will be held at the Bella Center in Copenhagen from 16-19 of May and will be attended by thousands of world influencers, advocates, researchers, journalists and activists.
It is the largest conference on girls and women’s health and rights and the Crown Princess will be the official patron.
The princess also acts as a patron for the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and the Danish Maternity Foundation and is a member of the High-Level Task Force for ICPD.

At the 2016 conference there will be a specific focus on maternal, sexual, and reproductive health and rights – and the inter-connections with gender equality, education, environment, and economic empowerment.
Among other areas, Denmark’s aid efforts focus on providing Burkinabe families access to information, prevention and health benefits in connection with pregnancy and birth.
Denmark also aims to tackle issues such as violence against women, gender equality and female circumcision.
