Using cell phones to help nurse midwives assist mothers giving birth in India
By Rachel Seeley - Communications and Information Specialist, PATH
Nurse midwives using the Mobile Midwife Platform.
In low-resource areas, mothers often give birth in rural clinic- and home-based settings without highly trained caregivers—putting the mothers and infants at risk for mortality and complications. The Mobile Midwife Platform is a software-based tool that runs on a cell phone or tablet that helps minimally trained midwives act on critical health information, reduce delays in providing care, and improve the services they deliver. PATH and our partner organizations have worked with local nurse midwives in India to adapt the software in response to their specific health needs and scenarios.
