Mountain Midwives

Recently we took a trip to visit one of our rural midwife groups. We brought some donations of medical supplies for the midwives and the local health centre, and held a meeting to hear about some of the midwives’ recent birth experiences. This group have already received a number of trainings, and we were happy to here about their management of prenatal control and guiding women to the hospitals if they recognized complications with the birth. We also discussed the challenges of delivering a baby in rural, remote conditions—. There is often no running water or electricity available, and sometimes no transport to the nearest town or hospital, especially at night. For these reasons it is so important to support these rural communities.
