Maternal & Child Health
Our maternal and child health services are community-based designed to enhance maternal and child outcomes by providing antepartum services in addition to the traditional postpartum care women receive through public health facilities. In collaboration with government health centers, we target pregnant women in remote hard to reach areas. Nurses on Bikes conduct one-on-one home visits, from pregnancy and until the child’s 24th month. During the visits, nurses focus on parent education, nutrition, sexual health, family planning, maternal health and well-being, family relationships and child development. They also link families to other specialized care when needed.
Our Nurses on a Bike conduct home visits to provide counseling and health education during pregnancy, provide maternal and newborn care, promotes and facilitates prompt or timely referral following the detection of complications and skilled birth attendance, psychological support for mothers and collection of demographic data.
