Our skilled birth attendants enrolled in our first class are nearing graduation and engaged in hands-on experience to prepare them for the job market. Their field work ranges from providing antenatal care, conducting labs, to assiting doctors with deliveries. They are acutely trained on recognizing the warning signs of high risk pregnancies as well as complications during delivery. This is most important in Cox's Bazar when transportation to a comprehensive facility equipped to do emergency obstetric care is limited and access can be deterred for a multitude of reasons. Every second counts when a mother is experiencing complications in labor and thus our birth attendants won't hesitate when they see a warning sign. Prior to graduation, each midwife will have been present to a minimum of 40 deliveries. They are exposed to many projects of HOPE's and have become instrumental in supporting our work. We cannot be any more ecstatic for these women to work in their communities and make a huge difference for the mothers of rural Bangladesh. Thank you for your continued support.
