Labour ward beds can get dirty, old and broken very fast in Tanzania when 80-100 babies are born a day. The April trip (2017) saw us replace 2 of these beds.
Helping Babies Breathe Champions are the go-to Midwives for Neonatal Resus and in our April (2017) trip we crowned 5 midwives official HBB Champions!
Whilst we were at Amana in our April (2017) trip we are thrilled to say no women died from maternal complications.
