thor-aboutsMother and baby gifts, even waiting houses and market money don’t save lives. Skilled staff do. If we were to encourage women to have a supervised delivery then we needed staff who could handle obstetric emergencies. We train ALL health staff from CHW to NO and mid-wife because all health staff deliver. We train twice a year in the labor room using the latest models and make it as real as we can. One on one training in drug administration.
