Birth outcomes--so much improvement needed!

In 2013 we year we hired a midwife for the clinic and trained 15 Community Health Educators. They give out the clean birthing kits and encourage women to take the prenatal vitamins that are supplied and to see the clinic staff for regular visits. They teach the safe home childbirth messages, which include recognizing danger signs and making a birth plan to prepare for an emergency. 

Our birth outcomes data collected from families that used our birthing kits from 2011 to 2013 showed that all 202 mothers survived, but tragically, 14 infants died at birth or within the first 3 days. We need to do so much more to help these nomad families!

Help by making an online donation of at least $25 on the next Bonus Day, June 18, 9 AM - 11:59 PM New York time (6 AM - 8:59 PM San Francisco time).
